    Google for "wave nature of light" and "particle nature of light" and read what you find, and you'll be able to come back with a better formed question.
  4. Electromagnetism
    Photoelectric effect
    Quantum mechanics
    Special Relativity

    Do you need explanations?
  5. The debate on whether light is a particle or wave is long over. Modern theories don't distinguish between the two. Are you looking for a list of obsolete theories?
