The photoelectric effet - A simulated experiment

Logo for The photoelectric effet - A simulated experiment
The simulation allows one to explore the photoelectric effect, i.e. the emission of electrons by an illuminated metallic surface (called an electrode) much in the same way as in a real laboratory. The user can change the intensity of the illuminating beam, select different wavelengths by rotating a diffraction grating, adjust the voltage of the illuminated surface (relative to a similar surface located nearby) and repeat the experiment with electrodes made of various metals.La simulation permet...
