Caption: Franklin's X-ray diffraction research. X-ray crystallography diffraction rotation pattern obtained as part of research to determine the structure of various materials. This image, of an unnamed material, was produced by British chemist Rosalind Franklin (1920-1958) while at the MRC Biophysics Research Unit at King's College London, UK. It was here in the early 1950s that Maurice Wilkins, Rosalind Franklin, and other crystallographers obtained X-ray diffraction patterns for DNA that led to James Watson and Francis Crick's DNA double helix model. As well as DNA, the King's College researchers investigated other materials, cells, and biological tissues.
