1 is known for inventing 2, and for his research using what you see on the table in 1.

Who is he? What is 2.

Everyone recognised 1, but we will give full points only to udupendra , rajeshvj , Vinod , ramsaravana , Sharath , Gammafunction , shyam , yaksha , Tathagata Chatterjee , srikanth , Abhishek , prasanth and asha who named the instrument in 2.

Update: Preetish gets it too. I blame R2D2 for the goof up :)

1. Jagadis Chandra Bose. Check this site which describes his work on wireless in detail.

2. Crescograph — for an in-depth coverage

This dude was indeed a genius!!

  1. udupendra

    Jagadish Chandra Bose, crescograph.

  2. alephnull

    J. C. Bose who made a sort of plant polygraph which is image 2.

  3. Jagish Chandra Bose (Basu)

    Apparatus to measure response of plants to stimuli. pain etc

  4. rajeshvj

    1. Dr. Jagadish Chandara Bose
    2. Crescograph

  5. Vinod

    Jagdish Chandra Bose..he apart from his inroads into mocrowaves and wireless communication, also forwarded a theory for the ascent of sap in plants in 1927, his theory contributed to the vital theory of ascent of sap. According to his theory the pumping action of the living cells in the endodermis junction were responsible for the ascent of sap in plants, which is in Pic 2

  6. Vinod

    I guess the Pic 2 is that of a crescograph?

  7. the person is J C Bose..
    The instrument is a cresco graph …
    abt plants responding to stimuli…

  8. Sharath

    The person in Pic 1 is Sir J. C. Bose and he is known for inventing the crescograph (Pic 2) which is used for measuring growth in plants and to demonstrate how the rate of growth varies under varying stimuli.

  9. Swetha

    1. Jagadish Chandra Bose
    2. Apparatus for record of movement of plants and trees

  10. Gammafunction

    1 is Jagadish Chandra Bose and 2 is a Crescograph.The crescograph basically measures a plant's response to stimuli.I remember this from a mention of JC Bose and his work in The autobiography of a Yogi .

  11. shyam

    J C Bose & Crescograph!

  12. yaksha

    1>JC Bose

  13. Tathagata Chatterjee

    1) Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose
    2) Crescograph – a device for measuring that plants too respond to various stimuli if they had nervous systems like animals.
    Tathagata Chatterjee

  14. Preetish

    The 1st pic is of Sir J C Bose and the 2nd pic is of a crescograph.

  15. srikanth

    1 = JC Bose. Research on wireless transmission?
    2 = The crescograph

    (I cheated :-/ )

  16. Abhishek

    1)J C Bose2)Crescograph

  17. piezocake

    William Roentgen and X-rays.

  18. prasanth

    The picture is that of Jagdish Chandra Bose.
    the 2nd picture is his crescograph invented to show the nervous impulses in plants

  19. asha

    J C Bose and his crescograph
