An anode is an electrode through which conventional current flows into a polarized electrical device. The direction of electric current is opposite to the direction of electron flow: electrons flow through the anode to the outside circuit.
In a device that consumes electricity, the anode is the charged positive electrode. Such devices include diodes, electrolytic cells in hydrogen production, and secondary battery cells in recharging batteries.
However, in a device that produces power, the anode is the negative terminal, due to the flow of electrons being reversed. Such devices include electrolytic cells in hydrogen production, vacuum tubes, cathode ray tubes, oscilloscopes and primary battery cells.
Stanford Advanced Materials (SAM) manufactures and supplies various anodes. including platinized titanium anodes, platinized niobium anodes, platinized niobium mesh anodes, etc.
