One of the fundamental challenges of physics is the reconciliation of Einstein's theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. The necessity to critically question these two pillars of modern physics arises, for example,... more
Intriguing discovery provides new insights into photoelectric effect  PHYS.ORG · 3 weeks
The discovery that free electrons can move asymmetrically provides a deeper understanding of one of the basic processes in physics: the photoelectric effect. It was first described by Albert Einstein and explains... more
Beyond Einstein: Physicists solve mystery surrounding photon momentum  PHYS.ORG · 3 weeks
Albert Einstein received the Nobel Prize for explaining the photoelectric effect: in its most intuitive form, a single atom is irradiated with light. According to Einstein, light consists of particles (photons) that... more
Beyond Einstein: Mystery surrounding photon momentum solved  SCIENCE DAILY · 3 weeks
According to Einstein, light consists of particles (photons) that transfer only quantized energy to the electron of the atom. If the photon's energy is sufficient, it knocks the electrons out of the atom. But... more
