Bragg Membership

William (Henry) Bragg and his son William Lawrence hold a unique place in Australian (and indeed international history) as the only father-and-son team to be awarded a Nobel Prize. They were awarded the 1915 Nobel Prize in Physics for their discovery of X-ray crystallography. William (Henry) Bragg was the first Professor of Physics at the University of Adelaide and his son (William) Lawrence was born and educated in South Australia. Both returned to the UK and were subsequently Directors of The Royal Institution of Great Britain.

Each year The Royal Institution of Australia celebrates this wonderful Bragg connection that links Australia and The Royal Institution of Great Britain (RiGB) and invites outstanding Australian scientists and science communicators to become Honorary Bragg Members. This prestigious award recognises their distinguished contribution to science and their support as ambassadors for The Royal Institution of Australia.
