anode

(ăn`ōd), electrodeelectrode,
terminal through which electric current passes between metallic and nonmetallic parts of an electric circuit. In most familiar circuits current is carried by metallic conductors, but in some circuits the current passes for some distance through a nonmetallic conductor.

anode

[′a‚nōd]
(electricity)
The terminal at which current enters a primary cell or storage battery; it is positive with respect to the device, and negative with respect to the external circuit.
(electronics)
The collector of electrons in an electron tube. Also known as plate; positive electrode.
In a semiconductor diode, the terminal toward which forward current flows from the external circuit.
(physical chemistry)
The positive terminal of an electrolytic cell.

anode

In an electric system to protect underground iron pipes or structures from electrochemical action, a metallic rod which is driven in the ground; direct current is passed through the rod to the earth, and then through the iron pipe or structure, in a direction opposite to that resulting from the electrochemical properties of the soil.

Biocatalytic Current Generation of GF and CNFs/GF Anode. The biocatalytic current generation curves of GF and CNFs/GF anodes under different concentration of acetate are shown in Figure 2.
In this paper, we have firstly demonstrated efficient ITO-free reference OSCs based on (Mo[O.sub.3])/Ag anodes. The PCE of 2.71% is obtained for OSCs based on the optimal Mo[O.sub.3] (2 nm)/Ag (9 nm) anode (also the highest PCE among all the ITO-free reference OSCs), comparable to that of ITO-based reference OSCs (PCE of 2.85%).
