Academic and Research Achievements: Sinha was deeply interested in high energy and cosmic-ray physics. He measured the mean-life of muons in elements of increasing Z-values; investigated the interaction of muons with matter with self-operating cloud-chambers constructed for the first time in India; determined the momentum-spectrum and charge-ratio of munos with a magnetic cosmic ray spectrograph; also carried out simultaneous estimation of their specific ionization in helium and argon in a cloud-chamber.

Awards and Honours: Professor Sinha received the lectureship awards: JC Bose Memorial Lecture (1965) and DM Bose Memorial Lecture (1986).
