The Two Braggs exhibition 'Illuminating a century of crystallography' is taking place at the Helen Martin studio in the Warwick Arts Centre from Monday 26 to Friday 30 August 2013.
It is a free exhibition for staff, students and public visitors. No need to register, come at any time from 9am to 8pm every day.
William and Lawrence Bragg, father and son, helped to transform the way we view the building blocks of the material world. Their crystallographic research first published in 1913 earned them a joint Nobel Prize (1915) and has since contributed to two-dozen more. A century later you can discover for yourselves the people, places and physics behind the Bragg’s crystallography.
For the first time this exhibition brings together original artefacts, artwork and archives that reflect the significance of the shadowy patterns the Braggs first explained a century ago.
There will be a special public day on Friday 30 August:
- Film viewing of "Driven to Diffraction"
- Tour of a modern laboratory
- Guest lectures by distinguished contemporary scientists
