The luminescent spectra of the uranyl salt crystals first discussed from the modern standpoint by Ehrenfest presents some radiation characteristics of a remarkable nature. These crystals at liquid-air temperatures as discovered by J. Becquerel and Onnes in 1903 have a large number of narrow bands occurring at definite intervals across the invisible spectrum.
