Sir C V Raman (7 November 1888 – 21 November 1970)
Nobel Price: 1930 Nobel Prize for Physics
Other Award: Bharat Ratna (1954)

Discovery: He discovered that, when light traverses a transparent material, some of the deflected light changes in wavelength. This phenomenon is now called Raman scattering and is the result of the Raman effect.
