Description

The first X-ray spectrometer designed by Sir William Lawrence Bragg (1890-1971), a physicist at Cambridge University. He was the first to show in 1921 that molecular structure could be deduced from the pattern of diffraction of X-rays by a crystal sample. Bragg and his father Sir William Henry Bragg (1862-1942), founded X-ray crystallography.
