Photoelectric effect ( 光電效應 )
• Evidence of light quanta 光量子的證明
• Introduction of the concept of photons 光子
• wave – particle duality of light
Light is wave(EM wave):

Light is also particle, called photon.

of EM radiation in this phenomenon.
By changing the position of
the sliding contact on the
potentiometer, we can
change V, voltage across

Einstein’s explanation
Einstein suggested that light have dual nature.
During transmission, they behave as waves.
When they are emitted or absorbed, they
behave as particles.
He assumed that EM radiation consists of lumps
of energy called photons 光子.
Energy of photon E = hf
f = The frequency of light
h = 6.625  1034 J s = Planck constant ( 普朗克常數 )
Einstein’s photoelectric equation
KEmax = hf  F
KEmax : Max KE of photoelectron
hf : energy of photon with frequency f
F: Work function
The intensity of light  nhf
 n = No. of photons
 No. of photoelectrons
 Photocurrent
since each photon is absorbed by one electron
(1)
(2) If hf > work function F ,
photoelectrons will be emitted instantly. There
should not be any time lag.

losing their energy in making collision with
other particles inside the metal

Energy levels of hydrogen atom

•Line spectra of monoatomic gases
•Explanation in terms of light quanta (photons)
& energy levels
•Hydrogen spectrum: energy level equations
En = -13.6/n2 eV
Why H atom?
H atom is the simplest atom.
H atom contains one electron only.
H atom is the only atom so far scientist
can fully understand and explain its
orbital electron motion and energy
levels.
He atom is already too complicated.

the substance is heated, bombarded by

H atom is ionized.

• The least energy required to remove an
electron completely from an atom in
ground state.
• Also called binding energy of the atom
• Electron:
E1  E
• For H atom, ionization energy = E- E1
= 0 – (-13.6)
= 13.6 eV
Transition of electron in H atom
• In H atom, an electron can move from energy
level En to energy level Em with an energy
change E = Em - En .

• For m > n, E = Em - En > 0
energy is increased (absorb energy) n e
• For m < n, E = Em - En < 0
n e
energy is decreased (release energy)
m
• a photon with energy E will be
absorbed but photons with energies
other than E will be scattered away.
e.g. photon with E = hf = 10.2 eV
(photon is absorbed
& electron transition from E1 to E2)
photon with E = 11.5 eV
(scattered away & no e transition)
However, a photon of energy greater
than ionization energy電離能 will be
absorbed and the extra energy will
store as the initial KE of the escaped
electron逃逸電子的初動能 .
E.g photon with E = 20.6 eV > 13.6 eV
photon is absorbed
H atom is ionized (e escape逃逸 )
KE of escaped e = 7.0 eV
• Apart from photons, electrons and other
particles can also excite other atoms by
bombardment.
Just like the collision of snooker balls. Energy is
transferred from one ball to the other.
• E.g.
In Franck-Hertz experiment
( 法蘭赫茲 ), we use energetic
electron to excite atoms
Excited atoms (n > 1)

• electron:

• Emission of radiation then occurs
• a photon of frequency f = ( En  Em )/h is
emitted.
explanations
The energy levels are getting closer and
closer for higher energy state.
the emission spectrum is discrete and lines
are closer at lower end. (short wavelength)
The intensities of lines depend on transition

the emissions are mostly spontaneous自發

‘Dark’ lines because they are not as bright
as the ‘unabsorbed’ light.
H absorption and emission spectrum
The emission and absorption spectra of the same
element are complementary to one another.
Production mechanism
• Only photons of certain frequencies
f = ( En  Em )/h can excite the
corresponding gas atoms.
quickly.
• For the other photons (other frequencies),
they just pass or are scattered away.
explanation
• The atoms of the gas absorb incident
photons of certain wavelength and re-emit
photons of the same wavelength almost
immediately, but in all directions.
• Consequently, the intensity of light of these
wavelengths, in the original direction is
reduced and ‘dark’ lines are produced.
Continuous spectra ( 連續光譜 )
• In solid, liquid and compressed (dense) gas
 continuous spectra
• Molecular gases or chemical compounds
 band帶狀 spectra
• excited atoms or molecules are not wholly
independent of one another, energy levels of
the atoms will have interaction among them.
radiation of more wavelengths are emitted.
Continuous spectra ( 連續光譜 )
• The spectra produced by a hot filament wire
or the sun is continuous.
• Because at high temperature, there is obvious
interaction between atoms as a result of
overlapping of energy levels between atoms.

Spontaneous emission ( 自發發射 )
• An excited atom falls back to its ground state
randomly.受激原子會隨機地回落到基態
• The radiation emitted is incoherent ( 不相干 )
& in all directions.
• The probability of spontaneous emission is
proportional to the number of excited atoms.
• It occurs in light bulb燈泡, discharge tube放

Stimulated emission ( 受激發射 )
• a photon of energy hf , where hf = En  E1
is capable of stimulating a excited atom to
pass from an excited state to the ground
state.
(electron: En  E1)

Photon: hf

The probability of stimulated emission
depends on
• the no. of excited atom
• the no. of photons of energy hf
available
difficulty
• Stimulated emission doesn’t happen easily
• Naturally, most atoms are at ground
states
• Solution :
population inversion
Population Inversion ( 粒子分佈倒置 )
• Population inversion is a situation where the
majority of atoms are excited to a higher
state. (higher energy level)

• This state must be a metastable state ( 亞

longer than usual (~3ms)
• the transition to the lower state occurs by
stimulated emission rather than spontaneous
emission.
Ground state:
electrons occupy the
lowest energy levels
Population inversion:
More electrons are at
higher energy level
P(stimulated emission) > P(absorption)
En
hf = En - E1
E1
Production mechanism
• Atoms are excited to an unstable energy
level by absorbing photons of flashes of
light (optical pumping).
• Population inversion occurs when excited
atoms reach metastable state (by emitting
photons hf1. )
• Apart from optical pumping, there are
other ways of pumping, like electrical
pumping in CD & DVD players
