In an important paper published on the pages of these PROCEEDINGS, W. Duane(1) makes a successful "attempt to formulate a theory of the reflection of X-rays by crystals, based on quantum ideas without reference to interference laws." A. H. Compton,(2) enlarging upon a hint contained in Duane's paper, has recently pointed out that the latter's hypothesis can be justified by the application of the general rules of the theory of quanta to the translatory motions of a crystal lattice.
