(p. xiii ) Introduction
This introductory chapter presents an overview of the life and achievements of William Lawrence Bragg. Bragg won the 1915 Nobel Prize in physics when he was twenty-five years old; to the present day, he remains the youngest person ever to win a Nobel Prize. Bragg's scientific work touched upon several disciplines, including chemistry, biology, and mineralogy. Its overarching theme, however, was the use of X-rays to determine the structures of crystals (or molecules in the crystalline state).
