Raman, Homi Bhabha and Research in Physics at Lahore and Chandigarh” at the Physics Department Auditorium on August 7, 2013 at 3:00 pm. Prof. Grover is also an alumnus of the Physics Department, who went on to the renowned Tata Institute of Fundamental Research at Mumbai, where he distinguished himself as one of the foremost experimental physicists in India.
The topic of the lecture has special significance in the current year 2013 as the Physics department is completing 25 successful years as a Centre for Advanced study, a scheme of the UGC to give incentive to well performing University Departments in the country. This year also happened to be the 125th birth anniversary year of Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman, the Indian Physics Nobel laureate, who received the Physics prize for in 1930 for his work on the scattering of light and the discovery of the famous Raman Effect.
