light quanta, Planck's constant, photoelectric effect
An alternative to the lightquantum hypothesis was advanced by H. R. Bachofner (1980), suggesting that electomagnetic corpuscular radiation consists of elementary photons of magnitude h, the longitudinal separation of which varies with the wavelength. This assumption seems to reconcile theory and experimental findings.
