Bragg's Law and Diffraction
This site presents an introduction to Bragg\'s Law of Diffraction, along with how diffraction of x-rays provides information on atoms in crystalline material. An Applet allows the user to vary the wavelength and angle of incidence of radiation to a surface, along with the distance between layers of the material to demonstrate the conditions necessary for constructive interference, or a Bragg\'s condition. The derivation of Bragg’s law is also explained.

Essential Tremor - Station and Gait Exam - Gait Sub-exam - Patient 12
The patient is a 70-year-old Caucasian female who first noticed voice and head tremor about 15 years ago. She has had a gradual progression of this tremor that now causes her head to shake, her voice to tremor and her bilateral arm to tremor. The tremor is most noticed when the limbs maintain a posture or are in motion. Her writing is affected especially when she attempts to write small.
