Erwin Schrodinger 126th Birthday Google Doodle  included in a yellow background. To make it apt for his birthday in the doodle we can see things which pointes to Schrödinger’s equation and we can also see the picture of Schrodinger’s cat in it.

It was the Schrodinger’s cat thought experiment including a cat, a radioactive material and a flask of poison in a sealed box devised by him made him famous. Apart from the cat thought experiment Schrödinger’s time dependent and independent equation is also his important contribution in quantum mechanics.

It was during 1910’s getting assistance from Franz Exner, his teacher and well known Australian Physicist Schrodinger became more curious in studying about physics and quantum principles.

His continuous efforts in experimenting new theories and principles made him popular and known as the father of Quantum Physics. Though most of his theories are widely accepted there was a great dispute regarding Schrödinger’s cat thought.

He was given many awards during the life time for achieving many notable discoveries . This includes Nobel Prize in Physics in the year 1933. This honorable prize was awarded him for his formulation of Schrödinger equation. Max Plank Medal, Australian decoration of science and arts are the other honors that was given to him.

He published a book What is life? It was in the year 1944 it was published. Many building, awards and places were named to Schrodinger’s name after his death on 4th January 1961.  Erwin Schrodinger 126th Birthday Doodle on August 12th of 2013 by Google is an honor for him and also for his contributions in physics.
