German theoretical physicist and Nobel Prize winner, 1914. He was the first to observe the diffraction of X-rays by crystals, suggesting that crystals be used to act as "grating" for diffraction. He went into retirement during WW II, but coming out of retirement, played a leading role in rebuilding German science.

Died 4/24/1960 Berlin, Germany.
