Greetings and good morning everyone, today I am going to give a speech on C.V. Raman. C.V. Raman, also known as the Great Indian Physicist Chandrasekhar Venkata Raman, was born in Tiruchirappalli, Tamil Nadu, on November 7, 1888. Raman naturally developed a passion for physics because his father was a teacher of the discipline. He was a standout student from the start. He passed his matriculation test from Madras University at the tender age of 12 as a bright and promising young man.
At Hindu College in Visakhapatnam and Presidency College in Madras, Chandrasekhar Venkata Raman pursued his education. He did a lot of studies while he was a student and had his papers published in numerous reputable periodicals. He was hired as the Assistant Accountant General in Calcutta in 1907 after placing first in the Financial Service Examination. He saw the secretary of the Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science, Dr. Amritlal Sarkar, there.
In 1924, he was chosen as a Fellow of the Royal Society of London. In 1928, he discovered the “Raman Effect”, and in 1930, he was given the Physics Nobel Prize.
When light energy particles called photons are scattered by the molecules in a medium, the Raman Effect occurs. His finding made it feasible to map the potential levels of energy gains of atoms and molecules in a substance for the first time. Raman also provided us with the scientific justification for the sky’s and the ocean’s blue hue. In 1954, he received the Bharat Ratna, and in 1957, he received the International Lenin Prize. Thank you.
