Caption: Max Laue (1879-1960), German physicist. Laue is most famous for his work on X-ray diffraction. He had the idea that crystals would provide a small enough mesh to diffract X-rays, and it was Laue's mathematical description that led to later work by the Braggs. For this discovery, Laue won the 1914 Nobel Prize for Physics. Laue's other work ranged from Einstein's Relativity theories to theories of superconductivity. He inherited a title from his father, and was then known as Max von Laue. He died from injuries sustained in a car crash.
