Member of:Laueite Group
Name:
Named by Hugo Strunz in 1954 in honor of Max Felix Theodor von Laue (1879-1960), professor of physics at the Kaiser-Wilhelm Institute (now Max Planck Institute), Berlin, Germany and in the University of Göttingen, Göttingen, Germany. Laue was the first to verify that minerals had a regular atomic arrangement as had been predicted by previous physicists.
