Photoelectricity and Quantum Optics: putting the records straight
Albert Einstein, the great pioneer of modern physics, was awarded the Nobel prize for his explanation of the photoelectric effect in 1905. While recently writing a book on basic concepts in physics, I was struck by the fact that almost all physics textbooks cited Einstein’s work as providing a proof for the concept of photons as the discrete energy units of electromagnetic radiation. In reality, the experimental features……Read More (PDF)
