Some facts to know
Sir Chandrashekhara Venkata Raman (7 November 1888 – 21 November 1970) was an
Indian Tamil physicist born in the former Madras Province in India.
He discovered that when light traverses a transparent material,
some of the deflected light changes wavelength and amplitude. This phenomenon, subsequently
known as Raman scattering, results from the Raman effect.
