If we perform a photoelectric effect experiment, we see the particle properties of the photons.
No time lag in the photoelectric effect. The Physics Teacher, 2010, v.
A similar behavior was observed regarding the photoelectric effect. In the photoelectric effect region, agood agreement between measured and calculated [mu] results for both soils was obtained.
When the X-ray photon energy is lower than IMeV, it will be easy that photoelectric effect and Compton scattering occur.
"In solar cells, which are mostly made from silicon, shining a beam of light on a material releases a positive and negative charge (photoelectric effect), producing an electrical current that can be used to charge a battery or can be fed into the public grid."
<p>Kao, sometimes referred to as the "father of fiber-optic communications," was formally honored by the Nobel Foundation in Stockholm, Sweden "for groundbreaking achievements concerning the transmission of light in fibers for optical communication" <p>The Shanghai-born Kao shares the award with Willard Boyle and George Smith, who invented imaging technology using a digital sensor dubbed a CCD (Charge-Coupled Device) that makes use of the photoelectric effect theorized by Albert Einstein under which light is transformed into electric signals.
These works comprised his theories on Brownian motion, the photoelectric effect, special relativity and mass-energy equivalence, or e=[mc.sup.2].
Einstein won the Nobel Prize in 1921 for his work on the photoelectric effect.
Robin Forrest, of the UK Atomic Energy Authority, said: "It does seem the photoelectric effect in very small uranium particles may explain some of the radiological problems with uranium.
The award of the Nobel Prize for physics in 1921 honoured Albert Einstein for his work on the photoelectric effect.
After a flurry of experimental activity, Planck was awarded the 1918 Nobel Prize in Physics for his discovery of energy quanta, followed closely by Albert Einstein's 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his explanation of the quantized photoelectric effect. Einstein went on to develop his Special Theory of Relativity that connected the concepts of energy and material in the famous equation, E=[mc.sup.2], and his General Theory of Relativity that suggested the three spatial dimensions of left/right, back/forth and up/down could be combined with time to form a new kind of four-dimensional fabric known as "space-time" that could be used to explain the effects of gravity.
