Definition
The Laue classes are eleven geometric crystal classes containing centrosymmetric crystallographic types of point groups and their subgroups. When absorption is negligible and Friedel's law applies, it is impossible to distinguish by diffraction between a centrosymmetric point group and one of its non-centrosymmetric subgroups; only point groups belonging to different Laue classes can then be distinguished.
