polarization

(1) The change from the open-circuit electrode potential as the result of the passage of current. (2) A change in the potential of an electrode during electrolysis, such that the potential of an anode becomes more noble, and that of a cathode more active, than their respective reversible potentials. Often accomplished by formation of a film on the ...

Polarization

• (n.) The act of polarizing; the state of being polarized, or of having polarity. • (n.) A peculiar affection or condition of the rays of light or heat, in consequence of which they exhibit different properties in different directions. • (n.)

Polarization

[economics] Economists refer to the polarization of the labor force when middle-class jobs — requiring a moderate level of skills, like autoworkers’ jobs — appear to disappear relative to those at the bottom, requiring few skills, and those at the top, requiring greater skill levels. The structure of job opportunities in the United St...

Polarization

[electrochemistry] In electrochemistry, polarization is an effect that counteracts and lowers the efficiency of electrochemical processes. The mechanism is typically depletion of reagents causing concentration gradients in boundary layers or the formation of compounds partly passivating the electrode surfaces and having the effect (dependin...

Polarization

[psychology] Polarization in communications and psychology, is the definition given to the behavior of a social or political group to split based on opposing views. Over time, more and more members of the original group join one or the other split group and fewer and fewer members remain neutral. This brings the two sides or `poles` further...

Polarization

[waves] Polarization (also polarisation) is a property of waves that can oscillate with more than one orientation. Electromagnetic waves such as light exhibit polarization, as do some other types of wave, such as gravitational waves. Sound waves in a gas or liquid do not exhibit polarization, since the oscillation is always in the direction...

polarization

A condition in which electromagnetic waves are constrained to vibrate in a certain plane or planes. Electromagnetic waves consist of vibrating electric and magnetic fields, with the direction of vibration perpendicular to the direction of motion of the wave. If the direction of vibration remains ste...
