Re: 1 electron = 1 photon?

This particular issue is better addressed using the wave model for light.

The electrical component of  the  three-component light wave generates the electrons in the sensor site. The results of frequency and amplitude can be included more conveniently.

I don't see how a real world sensor sire can have QE of 1.0.
