Dancing electrons lose the race

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 04:19:32 -0400

Atoms emit electrons when a material is irradiated with light at a sufficiently high frequency. Previously, physics had assumed that the motion of these photoelectrons is determined by the properties of the material. In a new study, physicists show that it is the interplay of the electrons within the atom that is decisive.
