polarization potential

polarization potential

[‚pō·lə·rə′zā·shən pə‚ten·chəl]
(electromagnetism)
One of two vectors from which can be derived, by differentiation, an electric scalar potential and magnetic vector potential satisfying the Lorentz condition. Also known as Hertz vector.
(physical chemistry)
The reverse potential of an electrolytic cell which opposes the direct electrolytic potential of the cell.

[8] applied a magnetic field to an electrolyte solution to discuss the magnetic phenomenon of electrolytes under the Lorentz force and demonstrated improvements in the polarization potential and hydrogen production efficiency.
Table 3: Parameters for Cyclic Polarization potential.
We have used a core polarization potential in a Dirac-Fock wave function code to calculate target atom wave functions and a matching form of the dipole transition operator to calculate oscillator strengths and Born cross sections.
We treat the long-range effect of core polarization by including a polarization potential explicitly in our calculation of the wave functions of the target atom and we add a term to the dipole-moment operator when calculating the oscillator strength of the transition.
