The photoelectric effect is a key experiment in the development of modern physics. In this experiment white light is filtered by an interference filter and illuminates a photocell. The maximum energy of the ejected electrons depends only on the frequency of the incident light, and is independent of its intensity! This law appears to be in contradiction with the electromagnetic wave theory of the light, but it becomes understandable in the frame of the corpuscular theory of light.
