The Photoelectric Effect
An effect had been noticed early on that when light of a high enough frequency is shined on a metal, the metal will eject electrons. This one effect and all of its subtle clues led Albert Einstein in 1905 to propose that light behaves as a particle-like wave packet called a photon...
