For the past ten years I have been engaged with experiments which were designed for the sake of subjecting Einstein's photo-electric quantum-theory equation to searching experimental tests, and although I have at times thought that I had evidence which was irreconcilable with that equation, the longer I have worked and the more completely I have eliminated sources of error the better has the equation been found to predict the observed results. I shall present herewith the barest sketch of six consequences of that equation and their experimental verification. Preliminary reports on some of these results have already been made (1) and detailed reports will be found in forthcoming numbers of the Physical Review.
