Latest Photoelectric effect Stories
Quantum mechanics tells us that light can behave simultaneously as a particle or a wave. However, there has never been an experiment able to capture both natures of light at the same time; the closest we have come is seeing either wave or particle, but always at different times. Taking a radically different experimental approach, EPFL scientists have now been able to take the first ever snapshot of light behaving both as a wave and as a particle.
First theorized in 1934 by a pair of scientists – Gregory Breit and John Wheeler – turning light into matter was deemed a fantastical and equally impossible feat.
Datalogic, a global leader in Automatic Data Capture and Industrial Automation markets and producer of bar code readers, mobile computers, sensors, vision systems and laser marking systems, has
Photoelectric sensor specialist STM joins Balluff. Florence, KY (PRWEB) February 04, 2014 STM Sensor Technologie München GmbH (STM) recently joined
In contrast to its apparent simplicity (that brought Einstein his Nobel Prize), the photoelectric effect, when an electron is knocked out from its parent atom by a photon, is quite complicated to analyze in general, especially when the atom contains a large number of electrons.
New, fast and accurate algorithm from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, based on the mathematical formalism used to model processes accompanying interaction of light with gas planet atmospheres, is a major step towards better understanding of physical and chemical properties of materials' surfaces studied under laboratory conditions.
Researchers at the University of Exeter have reportedly developed a new flexible and transparent photoelectric device that converts light into electrical signals by taking advantage of a pair of recently-discovered materials.
Berkeley Lab scientists discover how a photon beam can flip the spin polarization of electrons emitted from an exciting new material
Balluff's new family of 18M photoelectric tubular sensors features a variety of sensing models in a rugged metal housing with long range sensing capability. Florence,
The expression "beauty's only skin-deep" has often been applied to the chemistry of materials because so much action takes place at the surface.
