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...
