Bragg reflection. (a) Direct space. Bragg reflection of a wave of wavevector incident on a set of lattice planes of spacing d. The reflected wavevector is . Bragg's law can also be written , where is the inverse of the length of the corresponding reciprocallattice vector (see part b). (b) Reciprocal space. P is the tie point of the wavefield consisting of the incident wave and the reflected wave . Note that the wavevectors are oriented towards the tie point.
