Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein is a prominent name in Physics and this genius personality imparted unforgettable contribution in science and most importantly, this theoretical physicist’s work is well-marked due to its immeasurable significance on the philosophy of science. Besides, his theory of relativity brought a revolutionized impact on different sectors ranging from space to energy and gravity.

This famous personality was born on 14th March, 1879 in Germany and died on 18th April in 1955 in New Jersey, U.S. In 1901, he completed his diploma from the Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich and consequently, in 1905 he attained his doctor’s degree. In brief, he left the remarkable footprints due to his meritorious scientific ideas that led to the present advancement in science. However, his immeasurable talent made his name equivalent to ‘Genius’. Besides, he is also notable for his encouragement for the civil rights movement, along with the pacifist views.

However, 1905 is often signified as the Einstein’s ‘miracle year’ as during this period, he had published four noticeable papers in the ‘Annalen der Physik’, and each of them had added value to the course of the modern physics.

This Nobel laureate’s great works at a glance:

  • Wormholes, a hypothetical aspect of space and time continuum.
  • ‘Unified Field Theory’ which is illustrated by this exceptional personality
  • The principles of Quantum Mechanics formed by Einstein and these aspects had added significance to the information on the motion of electrons in the atoms done by Neils Bohr.
  • ‘Schrödinger gas model’ witnessed the contribution of Albert Einstein, along with Schrödinger himself.
  • General Relativity, a theory that brought changes in the Gravitational research.
  • ‘Einstein Solid Mode’ that was proposed by this ingenious person.
  • Bose–Einstein statistics
  • The law of the photoelectric effect
  • Wave Particle Duality

However, the man with great intelligence was awarded for several times. In 1920, he got the Barnard Medal and consequently, in 1921 he attained the most prestigious Nobel Prize in Physics, especially for the introduction of the law of the photoelectric effect. In the same year, he got the Matteucci Medal and ForMemRS, a prestigious award granted by the Royal Society of London. In 1925, he was esteemed with the Copley Medal and in the next year, he was honored with the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society. Besides, he received Max Planck Medal in 1929 and later, he was distinguished with the Time Person of the Century in 1999.

14th March- the birthday of the genius Albert Einstein, an exceptional talent who added revolutionized value to the philosophy of science.
