anode

 [an´ōd]
the electrode at which oxidation occurs and to which anions are attracted. adj., adj ano´dal.

an·ode

(an'ōd),
1. The positive pole of a galvanic battery or the electrode connected with it; an electrode toward which negatively charged ions (anions) migrate (for example, in electrophoresis); a positively charged electrode. Compare: cathode.
2. The portion, usually made of tungsten, of an x-ray tube from which x-rays are released by bombardment by cathode rays (electrons).
Synonym(s): positive electrode

The electrochemical performance of CNF-Ti[O.sub.2] anode for SIBs is investigated by cyclic voltammetry (CV) between 0.01 V and 3 V with a scan rate of 0.1 mV x [s.sup.-1] and galvanostatic charge-discharge techniques at 200 mA x [g.sup.-1].
From this description and from Figure 1, it is evident that we are able to observe part of the arc between nozzle and anode, and also the arc attachment which is moving along the anode surface with the period in the order of tens of microseconds.
Among these factors the anode electrode has main impact on the performance of MFC.
Among them, a protective layer covered silicon nanoparticles showed great potential to address the severe capacity fade and low Coulombic efficiency of silicon based anode material for the following reasons [57-59]: first, a protective layer could leave some free room between silicon and the coating, providing proper space for volume expansion of silicon.
