It's known as the It's known as the Einstein photo electric effect. The release of electron from a material depends on the frequency which gives the photon it's energy

Light can be though a wave, Maxwell Equations, or as a particle called a photon who's energy is planks constant times frequency. When a photon with appropriate energy strikes a electron it well change orbits
