Exploiting this finding,they were able to study diffraction, reflection, and interference effects of X-rays in crystals experimentally and in a quantitative manner. Their work was to result 30 Physics of Light and Color in chemistry’s most important technique for the elucidation of the threedimensional structure of large molecules. Fig. 10 shows the simplest case of such a lattice, for a cross-section of the first three planes of mass points in a cubic arrangement and with three electromagnetic rays, all of the same wavelength, which must be of the order of magnitude of the distance d between the mass points.

The physical cause of scattering is the presence of areas of different refractive index. Liquid water, for example, is essentially uniform in its refractive index and is transparent to visible light,but snow is white,unlike a homogeneous block of ice. Third, a white material has to be physically and chemically very stable in order to keep its whiteness almost infinitely. These three criteria are fulfilled only in some inorganic materials, and so demand for these white pigments is correspondingly great.
