Celebrating National Science Day - February 28, 2023

Each year on February 28th, India celebrates National Science Day to commemorate Indian physicist Professor C.V. Raman and his discovery of the Raman Effect on that same day in 1928.

Prof. Raman was a renowned scientist who made significant contributions to the field, particularly in light scattering. In 1930, he received the Nobel Prize in Physics for his discovery of the Raman Effect, which is the change in wavelength of light that occurs when it is scattered by molecules. He also made important contributions throughout his career to the fields of acoustics, optics, and crystal physics.
