Experiments have been made to determine the amplitude of vibration of the atoms in a quartz lattice due to piezo electric oscillations. A series of Laue X-ray patterns have been made of quartz plates cut at various angles to the electric axes. Very marked intensity differences are apparent between the patterns made with the plates oscillating and not oscillating.
