Cafe Scientifique: X-ray Diffraction & The Braggs

The next Cafe Scientifique is on 'X-ray Diffraction & The Braggs' with Prof Chris Hammond.

At Leeds University in 1913, William Henry Bragg and his son William Lawrence Bragg, undertook pioneering work and made important breakthroughs in the use of x-rays to determine the atomic structure of crystals.

They shared the Nobel prize for physics two years later. Marking the centenary of the Braggs' discovery at Leeds of the first crystal structures, Chris Hammond will explain their achievements and the significance of their work on x-ray diffraction to crystallography and materials science today.

    Looking forward to this tomorrow. I'll be there from 7:30 if anyone wishes to meet beforehand to get drinks and secure good seats. I'll try and grab a table near the front, right-handside. (The talk will be in the theatre room, not the bar.) I'll take a small model car with me and put that on the table, so you'll have something to look out for.

    I'm happy to be host, Margo. I normally put these up on my Sports group anyway.
