Fowler-DuBridge theory

[¦fau̇l·ər dü′brij ‚thē·ə·rē]
(solid-state physics)
Theory of photoelectric emission from a metal based on the Sommerfeld model, which takes into account the thermal agitation of electrons in the metal and predicts the photoelectric yield and the energy spectrum of photoelectrons as functions of temperature and the frequency of incident radiation.
