Physics 111 Advanced Laboratory. Professor Sumner Davis
Modern condensed matter physics began in 1912 when Laue, Friedrich, and Knipping presented a paper on the diffraction of x-rays by crystals. They proved that crystals are periodic lattices of atoms, and ever since then this periodicity has been invaluable to studies of condensed matter. In the experiment you observe first hand the diffraction of x-rays, and will learn about crystallography. The equipment is a commercial instrument all in one package.
