Atomic Physics and Related Subjects.: Communications to Nature.: Glancing Angle of Reflection from Galcite for Silver (Kα1) X-Rays

Article metrics


WE have measured the first order glancing angle at which the Kα1 line of silver is reflected from the cleavage planes of calcite by a method independent of any used by those who have obtained the most reliable results so far. The weighted mean value of fourteen independent observations reduced to 18° C. is 5° 17′ 13.81″ ± 0.06″.
