Remembering Sir JC Bose, The Genius Inventing Radio Communication
Harin - Feb 15, 2020
You would be surprised to know that one of the earliest inventors who invented a working radio communication device was Sir JC Bose.
In the age where streaming music and podcasts are more common, the old radio might be something of the past. But its importance is undeniable. You would be surprised to know that one of the earliest inventors who invented a working radio communication device was Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose. Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose or Sir JC Bose is also known as one of the greatest ever inventors in the country.
Even though Guglielmo Marconi, an Italian inventor, is credited for inventing the telegraph back in 1895, Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose was also trying to understand radio waves as well as their physical behavior at that time.
He became the first inventor who demonstrated radio communication with millimeter wavelengths. The wavelengths fell between the spectrum of 30GHz to 300GHz. Besides being an inventor, Sir JC Bose was also a polymath, biologist, physicist, botanist, archaeologist, and botanist.
At that time, rather than pursuing his development commercially, Sir JC Bose invited other scientists to base on his findings and to build their own inventions.
In later writings, Marconi himself praised Bose for his scientific achievement as well as his selflessness to share his acquired knowledge.
Sir JC Bose owned the patent for the first-ever diode in solid-state to receive electromagnetic waves that created some of today’s common microwave components. He also had significant contributions in the field of plant biology by inventing a crescograph, thus helping agriculture scientists find better ways for effective crop cultivation.
Last year, Sir JC Bose was nominated to be featured on the new 50-pound note of the UK.
