Title: Sir CV Raman and the Story of the Nobel Prize
Authors: Singh, Rajinder
Riess, Falk
Keywords: Nobel Prize
Raman effect
Issue Date: 1995
Abstract: In 1930, Sir C.V. Raman was the first 'non-white', Asian and Indian to receive the Nobel Prize in Physics due to his work on scattering of light and the discovery of the Raman effect. In the past, the questions have been raised about the sharing of the Prize either among his colleagues or the Russian scientists. It will be shown here that these objections are not fair, as the unpublished report of the (Royal) Swedish Academy of Sciences reveals. He received the Nobel Prize in a record time of two year after the discovery. The reasons for it are also elaborated.
