Ewald's answer was yes, whereupon Max von Laue suggested an experiment that would direct a beam of x-rays at a crystal.
A finales de ese mismo ano, Planck --a la cabeza de los entusiastas que promovieron la relatividad, la perfeccionaron y la extendieron, [Planck, 1958]-- organizo el primer coloquio sobre la relatividad en la Universidad de Berlin; asistio su colaborador Laue, quien luego publico varias contribuciones relativistas y tambien dio a luz, en 1911, el primer tratado, en aleman, sobre la relatividad especial, [Laue, 1911, 1921, 1961].
In this second edition, which has been completely revised, Laue and Plagens (both of Volkswagen AG) provide a reference they believe is suitable for reference and for supplemental study in organic chemistry courses.
