Hedwig entered the university in Breslau in 1907 as the second woman in the Physics Department and later she obtained his doctorate in Physics under Otto Lummer in 1913 and was soon appointed as Lummer's assistant. She stayed at the university's Physics Institute during World War I and obtained her Habilitation in 1930.

Hedwig Kohn was dismissed from his position in 1933, due to Nazi regulations which prohibited Jews from Government service.

Taking us inside Hedwig Kohn's lab, today's Doodle by Hamburg-based guest artist Carolin Löbbert celebrates the life and science of the pioneering physicist. After earning her doctorate in 1913, Kohn went on to become one of only three women certified to teach at a German university before World War II.

As a Jewish woman living in Nazi Germany, Kohn was barred from her teaching position in 1933. She spent many years completing research contracts in industrial physics before fleeing to the US in 1940. There, she returned to herf passion, teaching at the Woman's College of the University of North Carolina and Wellesley College in Massachusetts until 1952. After retiring from the classroom, Kohn took over a research associate position at Duke. In the sub-basement of the school's physics building, where her lab was located, she directed Ph.D students in their research while continuing her own work in flame spectronomy-something she started in 1912.

Over the years, Kohn's work resulted in more than 20 publications, one patent, and hundreds of textbook pages that used to radiate the field of radiometry (a set of techniques meant to measure electromagnetic radiation, including visible light) well in the 1960s

Happy 132nd birthday, Hedwig Kohn!
