George (Yuri Viktorovich) Wulff (Russian: Георгий (Юрий) Викторович Вульф) (22 June 1863, Nizhyn (Russian Empire, nowadays Ukraine) – 25 December 1925, Moscow) was a Russian crystallographer.

The Wulff construction,[1] Wulff net[2][3], Wulff-Bragg's condition and the mineral wulffite are named after him. Wulff was one of the first to experiment with X-ray crystallography.[4]
