The 110 Years of the Photon. From Einsteins Light Quanta to Extreme Light
We review the historical background and variants of the notion of light quanta since Einstein’s “heuristic viewpoint” on the photoelectric effect was published in 1905. The conceptual development will be analysed, on the basis of discussing the interaction of extremely low-intensity and extremely large-intensity light with matter. At some points, we shall also attempt to interrelate the physical interpretations of the photon with light-related scientific measurement techniques and with the technological development.
