  • Bragg method of crystal analysis

A technique in which a beam of x-rays is directed against a crystal, the atoms of which, because of their lattice arrangement, reflect the ray in the same way as a series of plane surfaces. If the wavelength of the x-rays is known, the measurements of the diffraction patterns formed by the reflected radiations provide a means of calculating the distances between the atomic planes.
