Sir William Lawrence Bragg Biography
Sir William Laurence Bragg are: British physicist, discoverer of the law of Bragg (1972), x-ray kristalografer (expert analysis of crystals with x rays). Bragg law is very important to determine the crystal structure. Together with Sir William Henry Bragg, his father, he got a nobel prize for physics in 1915.
Laurence Bragg was born in Adelaide, South Australia, on 31 March 1890 and died in Ipswitch, England, on July 1, 1971 at the age of 81 years. Laurence Bragg was born when his father was a member attended the University of Adelaide. Since childhood, Laurence Bragg studied physics and mathematics. At the age of 15 years he has entered universitar Adelaide. At age 18 he received his doctor, then he went to England and entered Trinity College, Cambridge. Here he deepened his knowledge of physics.
In 1912 when 22-year-old Laurence Bragg discovered that the crystals deflect the x-ray the discovery that shows bahwasinar Laue x-ray electromagnet is the same as the ordinary ray. In the same year during the summer, Laurence Bragg vacation to Australia and met with his father. His father is doubtful that the x-ray beam electromagnet. But Laurence Bragg held a highly active research. And from the results of his research he discovered two things. First. Memeang true that x-ray is a ray of electromagnet. Second. He found the similarities Bragg or Bragg Law. In 1914-1918 the first world war broke out. From 1915 until 1918 Laurence Bragg became penasihatmiliter guessing the sound field. He was asked to guess (determine) the distance from the sound of cannon enemy enemy cannon fire. After the war finished, he was appointed professor at Victoria University in Manchester, replacing Ernest Rutherford. Two years later at age 31, he married Alice Hopkinson, daughter of a doctor and get the two daughter.
