One hundred years of the photon


Department ofExperimental Physics, Peoples Friendship University ofRussia, ul. Miklukho-Maklaya 6, Moscow, 117198, Russian Federation

The history of the origination of Einstein’s hypothesis of light quanta is described. Reviewed is the arduous route of development of this hypothesis, which received ample recognition after the discovery of the photon.
