TitleSecond letter from William Henry Bragg, to Alfred Charles Glyn Egerton, regarding three papers, 'Extra reflexions from the two types of diamond' by Kathleen Yardley Lonsdale, 'Reflexion and scattering of X-rays with change of frequency, I. Theoretical' and 'Reflexion and scattering of X-rays with change of frequency - II. Experimental' by Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman
Date17 October 1941
DescriptionSectional Committee: Not stated [Physics]

Kathleen Yardley Lonsdale has prepared the attached comment on the papers by Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman [RR/68/122]. The plates are essential for the argument presented. Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman has contacted Max Born, 'asking him to omit any further publication as his observations (i.e. R's) strictly contradicted the thermal theory (of B, presumably)'.
