Greatest Scientist of India | List and Ranking

List of Greatest Indian Scientists | Famous Scientist of India

The term world is a sign of all those who give themselves to science and deepen their scientific knowledge in a particular field. In other words, their knowledge of their competence exceeds that of the ordinary. They are expert on things in terms of nature, classification and work. According to the modern definition, there is no difference between the scientist and the expert engineer. But it is clear that the world is preoccupied with the interpretation of phenomena while the technical factor is applied. Both are seeking to solve the same problems. Researchers are also attributed to the group of scientists (experimental and others). The Foundation consistently Alfred Bernhard Nobel chemist Swedish famous to give eminent scholars and scientists worldwide annually Nobel Prize. The fields are: physics, Chemistry, medicine, physiology, literature and peace (and since 1969 Award for science economics).

His most famous work is Aryabhatiya (in 499 CE, when he was 23) and Arya-Siddhanta. He was a person who lived in a time where he was the only person who discovered mathematical formulas before mathematicians in modern times. Aryabhata is a person who lived in ancient times, where he was a human who could find pi formulas and how to find the area of a triangle, round, etc. at that time.

C.V. Raman

You have done many important tasks in the form of a learner. In the year 1906, the first research paper on your light diffraction was published in Philosophical Journal of London. His title was - Unlimited diffraction straps caused by rectangular holes. When the rays of light pass through the edges of a hole or on the side of an opaque object and fall on any screen, the side-rings of the rays are visible on the edges of dark or colorful light. This phenomenon is called diffraction. The usual symptom of diffraction motions is. This shows that light is built in waves.

6. Srinivasa Ramanujan

Srinivasa Ramanujan

He was a mathematician which famous for his contributions to the development of mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite lines, and continuous fractions. Uniquely he is an autodidact. By a British mathematician, GH Hardy, Ramanujan can be said to be in the same class as mathematicians such as Euler, Newton, Gauss, and Archimedes.

7. Satyendra Nath Bose

Satyendra Nath Bose

Satyendra Nath Bose was born on 1 January 1894 in Kolkata. Satyendra Nath Bose was an Indian mathematician and physicist. His early education took place in his ordinary school near his home. He used to get the highest marks in all his examinations and he got first place. His talent was said to be that he would become one day mathematician like Pierre Simon, Leplus and Augustine Louis Cowathy. In physics two types of molecules are known - Bosan and Fermion. Of these, 'Bosan' is the name of Satyendra Nath Bose.

Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar was a theoretical physicist, astrophysicist and mathematician born American Indian. He won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1983 shared with William Fowler for his studies on important processes in stellar structure and evolution. He graduated from the University of Madras and received a doctorate from the University of Cambridge, although he worked at the University of Chicago from 1937 until his death in 1995. In addition to the Nobel Prize, he was awarded the Henry Norris Russell Lectureship of the American Astronomical Society (1949), the Bruce Medal of the Pacific Astronomical Society (1952), the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society (1953), the Medal Henry Draper of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States (1971) and the Copley Medal of the Royal Society (1984).

Meghnad Saha

Meghnad Saha was an astrophysicist from India, famous for his development of the Saha equation, which allows to describe the chemical and physical conditions in stars. Meghnad Saha's most widespread work is about the thermal ionization of the elements, which leads him to formulate what is now called the Saha ionization equation. This equation is one of the essential tools in the interpretation of the spectra of the stars in the field of astrophysics. By studying the spectrum of the different stars, it is possible to determine their temperature and from that through the Saha equation, determine the ionization state of the various elements that form the star.
