Sir J.C. Bose
Named The Father of Radio Science by IEEE, Jagadish Chandra Bose, (November 30, 1858 – November 23, 1937) was an Indian physicist, biologist, botanist, archaeologist, and an early writer of science fiction.
Sir J.C. Bose focused his research on milimeter-length electromagnetic waves in free space theorized by Maxwell and demonstrated by Hertz. He invented component technology that, fifty years later, was used to develop microwave radio transmission. IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n networks all transmit using milimeter waves (2, 4, 5 GHz) and are direct descendants of Bose’s work in 1890’s.
