Photons Several early experiments suggested that light energies are quantized. • black body radiation spectrum (Planck) • photo electric effect (Einstein’s Nobel) • compton scattering (Compton and Debye) • photomultiplier tubes • CCD • photodiode we use this lab The quantization of light is important to consider, for example when the λ is comparable to atomic distance scales or when the number of photons is not large or when the physical dimensions are large compared to λ . Visible light can be on either side of this boundary Measure of the energy of the emerging photon

Quantized Energies E = nhf h=6.63x10 34 Js "Planck's constant" E = n / h ω / h= h 2 π

Photons and Atoms Stores energy to provide high voltage pulse to ionize gas Why only 1 wavelength? (well, really 2 closely spaced ones)
