9781331880967: The Journal of the Institute of Metals, Vol. 16 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Journal of the Institute of Metals, Vol. 16

It will be my endeavour this evening to describe to you the new method of analyzing the structure of materials which are crystalline. It depends upon the use of X-rays, and I must therefore tell you something of those properties of the X-rays which are concerned, and afterwards give you an account of a few applications of the method and of the results obtained.

When successful, the new method results in the determination of the exact relative position of the atoms of which a crystal is composed. It has not as yet been applied to any but the simpler forms of crystals. It is a new science and must learn to walk before it tries to run. As progress is made more and more complex forms will no doubt be resolved. As experimenters in a new field we require practice, and moreover, we are not yet fully acquainted with the proper interpretation of many of the new facts which we observe. As time goes on, experience both in experiments and in interpretation will give us ever greater and greater command of the methods of the new research.

Let us begin then by a description of some of the more pertinent properties of X-rays.

They constitute, as we are aware, a form of radiation in which energy travels through space in straight lines. The rays are detected either by their action on a photographic plate or by the phosphorescence which they can produce on suitable screens, or by a certain curious effect upon a gas through which they pass.
