The group, which also included Werner Heisenberg and Max von Laue, were eventually released when the recordings of their chats revealed nothing of use.
Named after Max von Laue, such images provide a photographic record of the diffraction pattern that is produced when an X-ray beam passes through a crystal (Warren, 1969).

The X-rays were well named; it took 15 years of controversy before Max von Laue and the Braggs, by measuring the diffraction patterns of crystals, showed what X-rays are: 'light waves' with about a thousand times shorter wavelength than visible light.
Sin embargo, el desarrollo de su estudio y de sus beneficios empezo hace poco mas de cien anos, en 1912, aunque fue dos anos despues cuando se reconocio con el Premio Nobel de Fisica a Max von Laue por su descubrimiento de la difraccion de rayos X en cristales; es decir que los rayos X se desvian al entrar en contacto con los cristales.
In 1952, in private correspondence with Max von Laue (Liu, 1992), Einstein changed his view and argued that the body would become hotter by a Lorentz factor.
Nevertheless, it was not until 1911 that German physicist Max von Laue generalised it to include all forms of energy.

The two of them, along with Planck's student, Professor Max von Laue, would remain close personal friends and scientific colleagues even after Einstein departed for Princeton.
