Classical Physics


Photoelectric Effect as Resonance Phenomena

Authors: Walter Orlov

It is explicitly stated in the literature that classical electrodynamics can not explain the photoelectric effect. In my view, there is at least one possibility. The system of metal ion and quasi-free electron can be considered as a resonator. A simple estimation has revealed that its resonance frequency is close to the thershold frequency of the photoeffect.
