1. EMISSION OF ELECTRONS At room temperature the free electrons move randomly within the conductor, but they don’t leave the surface of the conductor due to attraction of positive charges. Some external energy is required to emit electrons from a metal surface. Minimum energy is required to emit the electrons which are just on the surface of the conductor. This minimum energy is called the work function( W) . The work function is the property of the metallic surface. The energy required to liberate an electron from metal surface may arise from various source such as heat, light, electric field etc. Depending on the nature of source of energy, the following methods are possible. (i) Thermionic emission: The energy to the free electrons can be given by heating the metal, the electrons so emitted are known as thermions. (ii) Field emission: When a conductor is put under strong electric field the free electrons on it experience an electric force in the opposite direction of field. Beyond a certain limit electrons start coming out of the metal surface. Emission from a metal surface by this method is called the field emission. (iii) Secondary emission: Emission of electrons from a metal surface by the bombardment of high speed electrons or other particle is known as secondary emission. (iv) Photoelectric emission: Emission of free electrons from a metal surface by falling light (or any other electromagnetic wave which has an energy greater than the work function of the metal) is called photoelectric emission. The electrons so emitted are called photoelectrons.

If the radiation is incident on the plate D through a quartz window W, electrons are ejected out of plate and current flows in the circuit. The plate C can be maintained at desired potential (+ve or -ve) with respect to plate D. With the help of this apparatus, we will now study the dependence of the photoelectric effect on the following factors. 1. Intensity of incident radiation 2. Potential difference between C and D 3. Frequency of incident radiation. Effect of Intensity of incident radiation The electrode C i.e. collecting electrode is made positive with respect to D. Keeping the frequency of light and the potentials fixed, the intensity (amount of energy falling per unit area per second) of incident light is varied and the photoelectric current (i) is measured in ammeter. The photoelectric current is directly proportional to the intensity of light. The photoelectric current gives an account of number of photoelectrons ejected per sec. O I A Effect of p.d. between C & D Keeping the intensity and frequency of light constant, the positive potential of C is increased gradually. The photoelectric current increases with increase in voltage (accelerating voltage) till, for a certain positive potential of plate C, the current becomes maximum beyond which it does not increase for any increase in the accelerating voltage. This maximum value of the current is called as saturation current. I2 >I1 I2 I1 Vc i Low intensity acceleroting potential retarding potential for two diff intensities but freq-same Make the potential of C as zero and make it increasingly negative. The photoelectric current decrease as the potential is made increasingly negative (retarding potential), till for a sharply defined negative potential Vc of C, the current becomes zero. The retarding potential for which the photoelectric current becomes zero is called as cut- off or stopping potential (Vc). 2 C max 1 eV mv 2 = When light of same frequency is used at higher intensity, the value of saturation current is found to be greater, but the stopping potential remains the same. Hence the stopping potential is independent of intensity of incident light of same frequency. Effect of frequency on Photoelectric Effect The stopping potential Vc is found to be changing linearly with frequency of incident light being more negative for high frequency. An increase in frequency of the incident light increases the kinetic energy of the emitted electrons, so greater retarding

For a given frequency v, Vc measures the maximum kinetic energy Emax of photoelectrons that can reach plate C. 2 c max 1 eV m V 2 Þ = Where m is the mass of electron, e is charge of electron and Vmax is maximum velocity of electron. This means that work done by stopping potential must just be equal to maximum kinetic energy of an electron. The effect of changing incident frequency v can also be studied from the plot of photoelectric current Vs potential applied across CD, keeping the intensity of incident radiation same. From graph, we see that imax is same in all cases. (for same intensity). From graph, as v increases, Vc becomes more negative. V'c Vc i + - imax for two diff freq but same intensity Low frequncy potential The plot of frequency Vs stopping potential for two different metals is shown here. It is clear from graph that there is a minimum frequency f0 and f0' for two metals for which the stopping potential is zero (Vc = 0). So for a frequency below f0 and f0' for two metals, there will not be any emission of photoelectrons. This minimum value of frequency of incident light below which the emission stops, however large the intensity of light may be, is called as threshold frequency. retrading potenital fo: Thershold for metal (1) f'o : Thershold for metal (2) fo f'o f (1) (2) Laws of Photoelectric Emission 1. For a light of any given frequency, photoelectric current is directly proportional to the intensity of light, provided the frequency is above the threshold frequency. 2. For a given material, there is a certain minimum (energy) frequency, called threshold frequency, below which the emission of photoelectrons stops completely, no matter how high is the intensity of incident light. 3. The maximum kinetic energy of the photoelectrons is found to increase with increase in the frequency of incident light, provided the frequency exceeds the threshold limit. The maximum kinetic energy is independent of the intensity of light.
- 4. 4. The photo-emission is an instantaneous process. After the radiation strikes the metal surface, it just takes 10–9 s for the ejection of photoelectrons. 4.2 SOURCE OF RADIATION If P (in Watts) be the power of the source of radiation and be the intensity of light radiation at a distance R from the source (R is the perpendicular distance of the receiving surface from the source), then: 2 P 4 R I = p If radiation is falling on a plate of area A, then, energy absorbed/sec by the plate is given as: 2 P Energy / sec A A J/ sec 4 R æ ö = I ´ = ´ ç ÷ è p ø If v be the frequency of the source (i.e. light radiation), then energy per photon = hv energy per second number of photons falling on plate per second energy per photon Þ = 2 P × A hc 4 R n/sec = Energy/photon = hv = hv If 0 v v ³ (v0: threshold frequency of plate) and photon efficiency of plate be x %, then the number of photoelectron emitted per second is: 2 P × A x 4 R n/sec = × hv 100 4.3 HOW TO DETERMINE THE PHOTOELECTRIC CURRENT?

BOHR MODEL The main features of Rutherford's model, viz. the nucleus and the electrons orbiting it under the action of the Coulomb's law of electrostatic attraction, were retained in Bohr's theory. In addition Bohr introduced the concept of 'radiation less orbits' or 'stationary states' in which the electron revolves around the nucleus, but does not radiate contrary to the laws of electromagnetism. This was a hypothesis, but at least a working one. Radiation occurred only when an electron made a transition from one stationary state to another. The difference between the energies of the two states was radiated as a single photon. Absorption occurred when a transition occurred from a lower stationary state to a higher stationary state. The third principle invoked by Bohr was the correspondence principle: i.e. the spectrum is continuous and the frequency of light emitted equals the frequency of the electron. In the classical limit. Using these general arguments and the existing body of knowledge, Bohr postulated the following: (i) The electron in an atom has only certain definite stationary states of motion allowed to it, called as energy levels. Each energy level has a definite energy associated with it. In each of these energy levels, electrons move in circular orbit around the positive nucleus. The necessary centripetal force is provided by the electrostatic attraction of the protons in the nucleus. As one moves away from the nucleus, the energy of the states increases. (ii) These states of allowed electronic motion are those in which the angular momentum of an electron is an integral multiple of h/2 or one can say that the angular momentum of an electron is quantised. Þ Angular momentum = m v r = n (h/2) Where m is the mass, v is the velocity, r is the radius of the orbit, h is Planck's constant and n is a positive integer.
- 7. (iii) When an atom is in one of these states, it does not radiate any energy but whenever there is a transition from one state to other, energy is emitted or absorbed depending upon the nature of transition. (iv) When an electron jumps from higher energy state to the lower energy state, it emits radiations in form of photons or quanta. However, when an electron moves from lower energy state to a higher state, energy is absorbed, again in form of photons. (v) The energy of a photon emitted or absorbed is given by using Planck's relation (E = hv). If E1 be the energy of any lower energy state and E2 be the energy of any higher energy state then the energy of the photon (emitted or absorbed) is given as E: E = E2 – E1 = h v Where h = Planck's constant and v = frequency of radiation emitted or absorbed. Note: Bohr's Model is applicable only to one-electron atoms like: He+ , Li++ apart from H-atom. In the following section we will define the radius of orbits around the nucleus (Bohr's orbits), the velocity and energy of an electron in various orbits around the nucleus. We will take rn : radius of nth orbit vn : velocity of electron in nth state (orbit) En : energy of nth state m : mass of an electron (9.1 x 10–31 Kg) Z : atomic number (No. of Protons) K = 1/(40) = constant = 9 x 109 N m2 C–2 h : Planck's constant (6.67 x 10–34 J-s) c : velocity of light (3 x 108 m/s) R : Rydberg constant (1.097 x 107 m–1 ) e : Charge on an electron (1.6 x 10–19 C) v : frequency of the radiation emitted or absorbed v : wave number of the spectral line in the atomic spectra From first postulate 2 2 2 n n mv K Ze r r = From second postulate n n nh mv r 2 = p Solving for n r and n v , we have: 2 2 n 2 2 n h radius r 4 Kme Z = = p 2 10 n 0.53 10 m Z - = ´ 2 n 0.53 A Z = 2 n 2 K Ze velocity v nh p = =

In fact the value of Rydberg constant in the empirical relation is approximately the same as calculated from the above relation (Bohr's Theory). This was the main success of Bohr's Theory i.e. to account for the experimental observations by postulating a theory. 5.1 ENERGY LEVELS OF HYDROGEN ATOM The spectrum of H-atom studied by Lyman, Balmer, Paschen, Bracken and Pfund can now be explained on the basis of Bohr's Model. It is now clear that when an electron jumps from a higher energy state to a lower energy state, the radiation is emitted in form of photons. The radiation emitted in such a transition corresponds to the spectral line in the atomic spectra of H-atom.

Laue, Henry and Lawrence Bragg, Barkla, Siegbahn were some of the Nobel Laureates who have made contribution to these studied. ray spectroscopy and electron-spectroscopy were some of the spin-offs of these studies apart from the discovery of elements. Experimental production of X-rays and the Bragg spectrometer: Electrons from a a heated element were accelerated by very high potential and made to impinge on the target (anode). The X-rays produced are collimated by parallel plates and are incident on a crystal (LiF, quartz, diamond, etc.) As the inter-atomic distance is of the same order as the wavelength of X-rays diffraction is produced and they are detected by counters or photographic plates.

According to Maxwell's theory, wherever a charged particle is accelerated or decelerated, they emit radiation. This is called Bremsstrahlung or braking radiation.
- 15. When the whole of the energy of the electron is converted to radiation, one gets the maximum energy or minimum. If V is the potential difference applied, it is converted to the kinetic energy of the electron. If Ve = E = hv, then the wave-length hc E . hc = 12400 eVÅ, and if E is given in eV, min. hc eV.A . E(eV) min. is directly given in Å. When the electrons lose their energy by multiple collisions and penetration inside the target, the radiation, produced has less energy The energy that is not converted to radiation only heats up the target. It has to be cooled property to prevent damage to the X-ray tube. The maximum value of intensity is approximately at min. 3 2 (This is often marked min. Actually it is not the maximum value of but at intensity maximum). The distribution of intensity depends on the material of the target, the current and the potential difference applied. I V2 and I current The current is normally in milli-amperes and the voltage in kilovolts. Illustration 8: If the wavelength of the K line of platinum is 0.2Å, what is the energy needed to excite this line? (the energy of the first level of platinum, n 1 E = 81keV). What is the corresponding absorption energy? What is the ionization energy of platinum? Solution: The energy corresponding to Q.2Å is 12400eV A E 0.2A = 62 × 103 eV = 62 KeV But if one gives 62 keV energy to the electron in the x-ray tube, one cannot et K x-ray line because the higher levels are full. K line can be excited only when a vacancy is created in the ground state, i.e to remove the electron from the k-level. The energy required is obviously the ionization energy of the k-level. which is 81 keV. There is no absorption line corresponding to the K emission line. In x-rays one gets only absorption edge (see the theory part). The ionization energy of the k-level is same as the k-absorption edge which is the energy of excitation of the k-electron. This is 81 keV for platinum. Illustration 9: An X-ray tube, operated at a potential difference of 40 kV, produces heat at the rate of 720 W.
