A very common image for the concept of Bragg Scattering is the following:
If my interpretation is indeed correct, it shows an incident plane wave, and with it, two rays of light. One happens to bounce off of an atom of the crystal, and the other doesn't traveling down to the next spacing level and bouncing off that. Bragg's Law, if we assume this all happens, makes perfect sense to me, however, I've always had one question:
If the momentum of photons cannot be measured like we do with classical objects, how can we simply say that one ray of light hits the top layer of atoms and one ray hits the bottom layer as if they move classically?
Those arrows, I'm assuming, are.. some kind of depiction of a ray of light or a photon.. although it's supposed to represent one plane wave. It just looks weird to me. The plane wave has constituent arrows of light that are big enough to interact with different parts of the crystal's atomic structure?
