Hedwig Kohn Google Doodle

Today's Google Doodle features Hedwig Kohn on the occasion of her 132nd birthday. Kohn was one of the first women to receive her PhD in Physics in Germany and later studied experimental spectroscopy in the Duke Physics lab of Hertha Sponer. What an honor for this pioneering woman in physics! If you can, stop by the department's chair's conference room and see Hedwig Kohn's photograph too.
