William Lawrence Bragg


Physics

William Bragg shared the 1915 Nobel Prize in physics with his father Henry Bragg “for their services in the analysis of crystal structure by means of X-rays." The Braggs contributed greatly to the work von Laue’s began in X-ray crystallography. They created an X-ray spectrometer and studied the reflected and diffracted spectrum from various crystals whose structure was known and unknown at the time, advancing the methods used and this area of physics.
