“My work in this period gravitated back to high-energy collision theory, since experiments had begun to reveal many of the results my diffractive multiple scattering theory had predicted.”
“Interestingly, lasers and computers brought back holograms close to Gabor's original application, providing general optical elements, holographic gratings, holographic X-ray lenses, hybrid diffractive optics, optical pattern recognition, and more.”
“The proposal was submitted to NSF who sent it for review to Immanuel Estermann, a co-author with Stern and Frisch of the landmark paper on diffractive scattering of hydrogen from LiF, one of the two papers cited when Stern won the”
“The magnificent sunglows due to the diffractive effects on light of the vapours and fine dust flung in vast volumes into the air, and rapidly diffused all round the globe, betokened an atmospheric condition of all others the most prejudicial to delicate researches in the solar vicinity.”
“Lalande Prize, exhibits, not the diffractive, but the prismatic spectrum as obtained with bisulphide of carbon prisms of large dispersive power.”
“Both Rutherfurd's and Rowland's gratings are machine-ruled, and reflect instead of transmitting the rays they analyse; but Rowland's present to them a very much larger diffractive surface, and consequently possess a higher resolving power.”
“These diffractive spectra have been examined with great skill by Draper and Langley.”
