Dec 09, 2016

Electrodes are used to provide current through nonmetal objects to alter them in numerous ways and to measure conductivity for numerous purposes. Examples include:

●Electrodes for fuel cells

●Electrodes for medical purposes, such as EEG (for recording brain activity), ECG (recording heart beats), ECT (electrical brain stimulation), defibrillator (recording and delivering cardiac stimulation)

●Electrodes for electrophysiology techniques in biomedical research

●Electrodes for execution by the electric chair

●Electrodes for electroplating

●Electrodes for arc welding

●Electrodes for cathodic protection

●Electrodes for grounding

●Electrodes for chemical analysis using electrochemical methods

●Inert electrodes for electrolysis (made of platinum)

●Membrane electrode assembly
