Photoelectric effect

Photoelectric Effect Laboratory


Photoelectric effect I


The photoelectric effect is the phenomenon whereby electrons jump when a beam of light strikes a metallic surface, causing the energy of the light to be transformed into electrical energy. This simulation allows us to study the photoelectric effect. Observe the results by changing the type of light, intensity, etc.

Photoelectric effect II


See how light strikes the electrons of a metallic object, and recreate the experiment that gave rise to the field of quantum mechanics.

Screen too narrow

This Java simulation cannot run on this device because it has a screen that is too narrow. We recommend that, for a better user experience, you run it on a device with a wider screen.
