Celebrating Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose-Furthering Indian Perception of IEEE

Dear Members,

Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose demonstrated in Calcutta, India, the generation, transmission and reception of electromagnetic waves at 60 GHz frequency over a distance of 23 meters through two intervening walls by ringing a bell and detonating gunpowder in 1895. He developed several components such as a spark-gap transmitter, coherer, horn antenna, dielectric lens, polarizer, and cylindrical diffraction grating.

This event, jointly organized by IEEE India Council, IEEE Bangalore Section and IEEE Bombay Section will celebrate the life and works of Sir J.C. Bose, whose pioneering investigation of radio and microwave optics which laid the foundations of experimental science in the Indian subcontinent. IEEE named Sir J.C Bose as one of the fathers of radio sciences. This event will also celebrate ‘radio transmission’ in diverse fields. This event is Supported by AP/MTT Joint Bangalore Chapter, SPS Bombay Chapter and WTC Bangalore and funded by the "Furthering Indian Perception on IEEE" project of IEEE Foundation. 

 This is a FREE Event for IEEE Members however Registration is mandatory.
