Abstract

We have previously shown that a beam of Cadmium atoms incident upon a cleavage face of a rock salt crystal is reflected so that the incident and reflected beams make equal angles with the normal to the crystal surface. At that time we suggested that this phenomenon could be interpreted in terms of the phase waves of de Broglie. The existence of a reflected beam making the same angle with the normal as does the incident beam suggests at once the possibility that we have here a situation in which the phase waves behave as X-rays do in the Bragg type of reflection.
