The Bragg angle is the angle between an incident beam of X-rays and a set of crystal planes for which the reflected or transmitted radiation displays a maximum intensity as a result of constructive interference. It is named after the physicist William Lawrence Bragg (1890–1971). See also Bragg's law.
