Exhibition to pay tribute to Sir C.V. Raman
A unique tribute was paid to renowned physicist C.V. Raman on his 124th birth anniversary here on Wednesday.
The Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum organised an exhibition titled ‘Laser’ to highlight the Raman Effect, which got him the Nobel Prize for Physics, and other developments in the field of laser technology, which was created 50 years ago.
The exhibition will be on at the museum for 45 days and it will travel to other places thereafter. H.L. Bhatt, former Head of the Department of Physics at the Indian Institute of Science, inaugurated it.
Interactive and illustrative exhibits are on display to explain various concepts related to laser technology. The exhibit on the history of laser technology tracks the works of all major scientists in the field, including Raman, Max Planck, and C. Kumar. N. Patel .
Various types of lasers such as solid state lasers and dye lasers have been exhibited and there are descriptions about areas such as medicine, defence and industry, where they are extensively used.
Students from various schools participated in a physics quiz held as part of the inaugural session.
A lecture on chemistry and a World Science Day celebration too has been organised in the coming days.
