**Einstein and the Photoelectric Effect**

“The simplest conception is that a light quantum transfers its entire energy to a single electron…” “We have to assume that, in ionization of a gas by ultraviolet light, one energy quantum of light serves to ionize one gas molecule.” Über einen die Erzeugung und Verwandlung des Lichtes betreffenden heuristischen Gesichtspunkt. Einstein A., Annalen der Physik, Vol 17, p 132, 1905. 4

**We believe, however, that such a theory is possible”**

Introduction The Einstein – Podolsky – Rosen paper The EPR Paper “The description of reality as given by a wave function is not complete… We believe, however, that such a theory is possible” A. Einstein, B. Podolsky, and N. Rosen, Can a quantum-mechanical description of physical reality be considered complete? Phys. Rev (1935).

**Introduction SPIE Photonics East,1-3 October 2006**

“The failure of the superstring theory program can be traced to its lack of any fundamental new symmetry principle. … theorists [must] turn … away from this failed program and toward the difficult task of better understanding the symmetries of the natural world.” Not Even Wrong. Woit, P., Basic Books, New York, 2006 “…the truth lies in a direction that requires a radical rethinking of our basic ideas about space, time and the quantum world.” The Trouble with Physics, Smolin L., Houghton Mifflin Co., Boston, 2006 “paradoxes … arise with the assumption that photons are indivisible elementary particles...” SPIE Photonics East,1-3 October 2006 Advanced Photon Counting Techniques (SPIE Vol. 6372, paper no. 29)
