  • In 1933, with the support of a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation, Karlik and Hernegger acquired a glass spectrograph of high light-gathering power. 42 Expert in spectroscopic measurements due to her earlier work with Przibram and Herbert Haberlandt, Karlik joined by Hernegger, photographed the characteristic band-spectra due to uranium fluorescence and then compared those with spectra of known uranium content. 43 Supported by a stipendium from the Austrian ministry of education, Karlik performed the first experiments in Bornö in the summer of 1935 and she moved some samples to Vienna the following fall. 44 28
