Exploring the antithesis of the wave model, this album of eight computer-animated video segments looks at the particle approach to studying light. Black-body radiation, Planck's constant, the Photoelectric Effect, and the work of James Clerk Maxwell are presented as forerunners to Einstein's concept of photon frequency.

Abstract:

Exploring the antithesis of the wave model, this album of eight computer-animated video segments looks at the particle approach to studying light. Black-body radiation, Planck's constant, the Photoelectric Effect, and the work of James Clerk Maxwell are presented as forerunners to Einstein's concept of photon frequency. Examples of a slope intercept graph and a revised double-slit experiment using light-sensitive paper segue to an illustration of the Compton Effect, establishing that light consists of a stream of particles. De Broglie's contributions introduce wave-particle duality-which some might consider a muddy solution, although it represents the best that current science can do.
