C V Raman’s Biography


Raman’s father started as a teacher at a school in Thiruvanaikaval, became a professor of mathematics and physics at Rao Narasimha University, Visakhapatnam in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh and then joined the Presidency College in the city of Chennai.

At an early age he moved to the city of Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh. He completed his bachelor’s and doctoral degrees in physics and English at the Presidency College of Madras. He obtained a position in the Indian Civil Services as assistant to the general supervisor in Calcutta.

He was professor of physics at the Palit chair at the University of Calcutta between 1917 and 1933 and it was there that his work in the field of optics was recognized. In 1919 he was appointed honorary secretary of the Indian Association for the Progress of the Sciences and between 1933 and 1948 he was director of the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore. In 1929 he received the title of knight (sir).

Initially his investigations were directed towards the study of vibrations and acoustic problems, but around 1920 he began to investigate the diffraction of light and X-rays.

In 1928 he was the discoverer of the so-called Raman effect, which took place when irradiating a transparent liquid or a vapor with a monochromatic light and studying the spectrum of the diffused light, in which variations of frequency were observed, according to the theoretical predictions formulated in 1923 by AGS Smekal.

For this discovery, in 1930 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics.

Since 1949 he founded and was part of the board of directors of the Raman Research Institute.
