|Bose Institute was founded by Acharya Jagadish
Chandra Bose, F.R.S., in 1917. The institute was one of the
earliest, perhaps the first modern research institute in India.
He is generally acknowledged as the father of modern scientific
research in India.
His scientific investigations can be classified under the following
|| Started experimental
research on the Hertzion waves (1894) in India and created
the shortest radio-waves (5mm). He had devised a portable
(10" x 12") apparatus for the study of optical properties
of 5 mm waves. It had the earliest waveguide and Horn
Antenna of Microwave engineering of today. J. C. Bose
was the pioneer in multimedia communication. First communication
experiments were conducted in 1895 in Calcutta. His Galena
Detector was the first semiconductor device and the earliest
Photovoltaic Cell (Applied for patent and granted in 1904,
patent no. U.S. 755840). Recently, he has been acknowledged
by IEEE (USA) as one of the pioneers in the discovery
||Initiated detailed study of
coherer leading to his discovery of the common nature of electric
response to all forms of stimulation, in animal and plant tissues
as well as in some inorganic models
|| He continued efforts to device
inorganic models of the biophysical phenomena underlying electrical
and mechanical responses to stimulation, the transmission of
excitation in plant and animal tissues and of vision and memory.
||During this period he devoted
himself mainly to the study of response phenomena in plants,
complexity of whose responses lies intermediate between those
of inorganic matter and animal. J. C. Bose founded premier research
institute, BOSE INSTITUTE, in Calcutta on 30th November 1917.
J. C. Bose delivered his address "The Voice of life" on this
occasion and he dedicated the institute to the Nation.
