At the very young age of 25, Lawrence Bragg is awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics along with his father For their services in the analysis of crystal structure by means of x-rays.
Lawrence Bragg discovers the possibility of calculating the positions of atoms within a crystal with the help of the diffractiation of a x-ray beam. In collaboration with his father both improve the method and design the instruments necessary.
William Bragg attends King William's College, Isle of Man.
William Henry Bragg discovers the Bragg law of X-ray diffraction. After this the Braggs, father and son, work together to design the first ionization spectrometer (March 1913), predecessor of modern x-ray and neutron diffractometers. With this machine they observe and analyse the molecular structure of crystals.
Lawrence Bragg obtains the Langworthy Professorship of Physics at Manchester University.
During World War I, William Bragg works on anti-submarine devices.
William Bragg attends Market Harborough Grammar School.
William Bragg is appointed Elder Professor of Mathematics and Experimental Physics at University of Adelaide. He is only 23. During this period he publishes three minor papers on electrostatics and the energy of the electromagnetic field. He trains himself to become a good lecturer and he supplies all the equipment he needs for practical laboratory teaching.
During the first world war Lawrence Bragg serves as Technical Advisor on Sound Ranging.
William Bragg serves as President of the Royal Society.
William Bragg becomes Quain Professor of Physics at University College London succeeding the chemist and physicist Sir James Dewar. Although Bragg is appointed Quain Professor in 1915, he doesn’t start working there until after World War I. While Quain professor at London he continues his research on crystal analysis.
William Bragg delivers his presidential address entitled On Some Recent Advances in the ory of the Ionization of Gases at the Australasian Association for the Advancement of Science. Soon after the delivery of his address, some radium bromide is made available to Bragg for experimentation and many other doors are now for him magically opened.
Lawrence Bragg is appointed Fellow and Lecturer in Natural Sciences at Trinity College.
Lawrence Bragg is appointed Fuller-Professor of Chemistry at the Royal Institution. He works there till his retirement in 1966.
William Bragg becomes Fullerian Professor of Chemistry at the Royal Institution and Director of the Davy Faraday Research Laboratory. Here he is responsible for the spread of crystalstructure methods. In the meanwhile the sciences of metallurgy and mineralogy, both predominantly concerned with solids, reborn.
William Bragg dies in London on hearth failure.
William Bragg earns his MS in physics at Trinity College.
Lawrence Bragg marries Alice Grace Jenny nee Hopkinson, they have two children.
William Bragg is elected a minor scholar of Trinity College. Here he studies mathematics under Dr. E. J. Routh. He graduates in 1884 as third wrangler.
William Bragg is born in Westward, the eldest child of Robert John Bragg, a merchant marine officer and farmer, and his wife Mary née Wood, a clergyman's daughter. His mother dies when he is only 7.
William Lawrence Bragg is born in North Adelaide as the son of William Henry Bragg and Gwendoline Todd. His father is an elder professor of mathematics and physics at the local university. From an early age on Lawrence Bragg develops an interest in science and mathematics.
William Bragg is appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1917, Knight Commander in 1920, and is admitted to the Order of Merit in 1931.
Lawrence Bragg attends the St.Peter´s College but due to his extraordinary performance proceeds to University after just one year.
William Bragg studies physics at Cavendish Laboratory during part of 1885. In this year he is also awarded a first class honours in the mathematical tripos.
William Bragg becomes Cavendish Professor of Physics at University of Leeds, where he develops his view that both gamma rays and X rays have particle-like properties. He invents the X-ray spectrometer and with his son, William Lawrence Bragg, found X-ray crystallography, the analysis of crystal structure using X-ray diffraction.
William Bragg receives one half of the Nobel Prize in Physics along with his son Lawrence Bragg "for their services in the analysis of crystal structure by means of X-rays".
Lawrence Bragg studies Mathematics, physics and chemistry at the University of Adelaide graduating in 1908 with honours.
