# What is Laue method?

## What is Laue method?

a method of X-ray diffraction in the analysis of crystal structure, used a single, fixed crystal irradiated by a beam of a continuous spectrum of X-ray, the spots pattern produce is called X-ray diffraction. It gives information about the crystallographic symmetry of the material structure. Also called Lauégrams.

**What is Laue photograph?**

Definition of Laue pattern : a photographic record of the diffraction pattern formed when a beam of X rays passes through a thin crystal plate.

### What is Laue diffraction?

Laue diffraction pattern, in X rays, a regular array of spots on a photographic emulsion resulting from X rays scattered by certain groups of parallel atomic planes within a crystal.

**What is the difference between Laue and Bragg diffraction?**

The key difference between Bragg and Laue diffraction is that Bragg diffraction gives the angles for coherent and incoherent scattering from a crystal lattice whereas Laue diffraction relates to the scattering of waves in the process of diffraction by a crystal.

#### Who discovered Laue method?

Max von Laue | |
---|---|

Born | Max Theodor Felix Laue9 October 1879 Pfaffendorf, Kingdom of Prussia, German Empire |

Died | 24 April 1960 (aged 80) West Berlin, West Germany |

Alma mater | University of Strasbourg University of Göttingen University of Munich University of Berlin |

Known for | X-ray diffraction |

**What is Laue symmetry?**

When the incoming beam is parallel to a high-symmetry direction of the crystal, the Laue pattern also has high symmetry. In cubic crystals, an incoming beam parallel to one of the unit cell edges (a <001> direction) produces Laue patterns with 4-fold symmetry.

## What is Bragg diffraction and Brillouin zone?

The construction of Bragg Planes in the context of Brillouin zones can be understood by considering Bragg’s Law. λ = 2dsinθ where θ is the angle between the incident radiation and the diffracting plane, λ is the wavelength of the incident radiation and d is the interplanar spacing of the diffracting planes.

**What is Bragg’s law used for?**

The Bragg law is useful for measuring wavelengths and for determining the lattice spacings of crystals. To measure a particular wavelength, the radiation beam and the detector are both set at some arbitrary angle θ. The angle is then modified until a strong signal is received.

### What is the main contribution of Max von Laue?

He lived on, still actively at work, for another six months. His best known work, however, for which he received the Nobel Prize for Physics for 1914, was his discovery of the diffraction of X-rays on crystals.

**What is Laue group?**

Laue groups are the 11 characteristic centrosymmetric point groups (in yellow) as listed in Table 1677a. The Laue groups are obtained by adding a center of symmetry to each point group. Table 1677a. Centrosymmetric, non-centrosymmetric, and chiral space groups.

**What are Miller indices?**

Miller indices are used to specify directions and planes. These directions and planes could be in lattices or in crystals. The number of indices will match with the dimension of the lattice or the crystal.
