The contributions of Sir Jagadis Chunder Bose in the areas of electromagnetic (EM) millimeter waves and microwaves are discussed. He played a key role in conducting research in these fields and developing various measurement techniques and circuit components between 1894-1900. He developed the EM horn, the circular waveguide, the point-contact detector, and the galena detector of EM waves. One of his main goals was to demonstrate that light was EM in nature by measuring the relationship between the dielectric constant and the permittivity of the materials in the high-frequency regime, as predicted by Maxwell. He utilized EM mm waves to perform a variety significant research in the area of microwaves and mm waves. His work in the mm wave area continued to be recognized by a large number of microwave professionals and researchers. He made significant contributions towards the advancement of the discipline of mm wave physics and techniques.
