The new type of X-ray reflection forming the subject of this paper was first described and an explanation of it on the basis of the quantum theory given in a series of papers published earlier this year by Raman and Nilakantan in these Proceedings and elsewhere. The present report is intended to be a self-contained theoretical exposition of the subject and incorporates the ideas already expounded in the papers by Raman and Nilakantan, as also the fuller mathematical treatment by Raman and Nath published in these Proceedings for July 1940. Recent experiments by Nilakantan with diamond completely establish the quantum theoretical explanation of the phenomenon.
