The Bragg condition (by Bragg in 1913) can be derived by the Laue equations that is making use of the Miller indices and all the latice/crystal stuff (so basically it's bringing Bragg's law to more fundamental ground).

But what is interesting to me: When did the "Laue way" came up? Was it only named after Max von Laue or did he himself publish a paper introducing this formalism?

Neither Wikipedia nor the books I have are citing it. The Laue diffraction/condition/law is always just presented without origin. But I'd like to find it's real origin.
