  • IN a recent address (Indian Journal of Physics, vol. 2, part 3, p. 387) Prof. C. V. Raman announced the interesting discovery that when monochromatic light is diffused by the molecules of a liquid, the spectrum of the scattered light contains, besides the incident lines, also other new lines of increased wavelength. The Raman effect, as it may be called, is less easily observed in the case of scattering by gases and vapours. Nevertheless, I have succeeded in photographing a satisfactory… CONTINUE READING
