Abstract: We derive a sharp uncertainty inequality of the form

\begin{equation*}\|x^{2} f\|_{1}^{} \,\|\xi \;\,\hat {\!\!f}\|_{2}^{2}\ge {\frac{\Lambda _{0}}{4\pi ^{2}}}\, \|f\|_{1}^{}\,\|f\|_{2}^{2},\end{equation*}

with $\Lambda _{0}=0.428368\dots $. As a consequence of this inequality we derive an upper bound for the so-called Laue constant, that is, the infimum $\lambda _{0}^{}$ of the functional $\lambda (p)=4\pi ^{2} \|x^{2} p\|_{1}^{}\|x^{2} \hat p\|_{1}^{}/(p(0)\hat p(0))$, taken over all $p\ge 0$ with $\hat p\ge 0\;$ ($p\not \equiv 0$). Precisely, we obtain that $\lambda _{0}^{}\le 2\Lambda _{0}=0.85673673\dots ,$ which improves a previous bound of T. Gneiting.
