I think it is more likely dealing with the photo-electric effect, or something dealing with EM fields in matter. The vector diagram looks like it is representing displacement field (D), magnetic field(H), and the Poynting vector. The latter is usually represented by an "S" nowadays, but maybe in 1905 it was represented by a capital Pi.

I can't see the details of the part on the left.
