Everything moves like a wave and exchanges energy and momentum like a particle. When waves move through a crystal they diffract. Light, sound, neutrons, atoms, and electrons are all diffracted by crystals.

The shape and the dimensions of the unit cell can be deduced from the position of the Bragg reflections; the content of the unit cell, on the other hand, must be determined from the intensities of the reflections.
