	That's a new one and certainly not generally recognized.  The
photoelectric effect refers to the emission of electrons from a surface
as the result of absorption of photons.  There are some neat
descriptions of the effect on the web.  Just try a Google search on

	That's another new one.  Examples?

	Please do.
