The photoelectric effet - A simulated experiment

[en] 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. _________ [fr] La simulation permet d'explorer l'effet photoélectrique, c'est-à-dire l'émission d'électrons par une surface métallique exposée à un faisceau lumineux. D'un manière analogue à ce qu'on peut faire dans une véritable laboratoire, l'utilisateur peut varier l'intensité lumineuse incidente sur la surface,... Show More
