Organised by Professor Haroon Ahmed FRS and Professor Archie Howie FRS


This one-day scientific meeting marks the centenary of the discovery of Bragg’s Law and surveys some of its subsequent wide-ranging applications. Open to all who are interested

The first public presentation of the law was made at a lecture to the Society on 11 November 1912.
