National Science Day

National Science Day commemorates the discovery of the Raman Effect first defined by physicist Sir C. V. Raman on February 28. The Raman Effect, also known as Raman scattering, is a physical process in which light (or photons) scatters from a substance, resulting in a change in energy.


When light interacts with certain substance, energy is exchanged, causing the wavelength of the scattered light to alter. This discovery led Raman to win the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1930.


The Raman Effect has been applied to various fields such as

-      Biomedical industry

-      Medicinal chemistry

-      Forensic science

-      Drug monitoring

-      Nanotechnology


The Raman Effect is also applied in technology like microscope to observe not just the structural but also chemical details of substances.


National Science Day strives to emphasize the significance of science and technology among Indian current and future scientists. Furthermore, it is the day to promote a scientific mindset in order to continue pursuing careers in a variety of scientific fields.


Happy National Science Day!
