Google marks physics Nobel Prize winner Max Born's 135th Birthday with a sketch doodle
The internet search engine giant Google honoured the Nobel Prize winner Max Born, German physicist and mathematician, for his excellent work in quantum mechanics on his 135th birth anniversary on December 11 today.

The sketch doodle created by guest artist Kati Szilagyion the home page of Google depicts Max Born writing with symbol psi resembling a pen, which is also the symbol for wave function in quantum physics. In the background of the sketch of Max Born the waves of different kind and particulate nature of matter are shown by the letters of the logo.

Max Born (1882-1970) who took birth in the town of Breslau - then in Germany, now in Poland - was instrumental in the development of quantum mechanics and made noteworthy contributions to solid-state physics and optics. He won the 1954 Nobel Prize in Physics for his fundamental research in Quantum Mechanics in the form of statistical interpretation of the wave function.

Motivated and impressed by Albert Einstein's research on special relativity, Born began his research on four-dimensional space-time along with Professor Hermann Minkowski and also collaborated with other research institutes including Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru along with Sir C.V. Raman, and another Nobel Prize winner in physics. He is well-known for his 'Born Rule,' a quantum theory that uses mathematical probability to predict the location of wave-particles in a quantum system.
