[pə′lar·əd·ē i‚fekt]
(electronics)
An effect for which the breakdown voltage across a vacuum separating two electrodes, one of which is pointed, is much higher when the pointed electrode is the anode.

No correction was applied to the calibration coefficient to account for polarity effect since at both facilities the same polarity was used.
The polarity effect and the electronic recombination effect were excluded as possible influences to the comparison results.
In this context, an important aspect to be analysed is the polarity effect.
These four stage analysis leads to correspondent phases of volumetric relative wear dynamics, considering the polarity effect.
In order to take advantage of polarity effect, controlled commanded pulses with low energy could be delivered within stretching semiperiod together with positive polarity, aiming at increase the number of discharges within a semiperiod duration.
The result therefore shows that the participant-age and polarity effect is localised in the rating of Creative behaviours on the Creativity scale, with personal and social aspects rated highly by young adults while traditional aspects of intelligence were rated highly by older adults.
A further result that follows from the polarity effect described above is that judgments of creative and wise behaviours from Sternberg's (1985) MDS analyses were similar when based on the intellectual aspects of each construct.
03% is included in the uncertainty of the current measurement at the NIST to account for the polarity effect.
Polarity effects on wound healing using electric stimulation in rabbits.
x] band energies with respect to solvent refractive index in the ether-anisole mixtures are most likely to be caused by slight solvent polarity effects (resulting from the small polarity differences between solvents in the mixture) canceling the small polarizability effects on the [Q.
No investigation into the polarity effects was conducted for this comparison; previously determined polarity corrections were applied.
