    The question seems to be wrong! Nothing would happen to the characteristic of the electrons. Instead if u had asked what are the factors that cause the release of photo electrons then the answer is it depends on the intenstiy, frequency of the radiation used, nature of the material from which electrons are emitted etc.....................

    If energy of photon E=hv (where h is plank’s constant and v is electromagnetic frequency of photon) is sufficient to produce photo-effect, then E=E1+E2, where E1 is work necessary to break bonds of electron to material, and E2 is kinetic energy of the electron when it is outsides.

    It might be probable that its the ionisation(of the material) and incident wavelength and frequency of it.
