|Noun||1.||electrode - a conductor used to make electrical contact with some part of a circuit|
anode - a positively charged electrode by which electrons leave an electrical device
base - (electronics) the part of a transistor that separates the emitter from the collector
electric battery, battery - a device that produces electricity; may have several primary or secondary cells arranged in parallel or series
cathode - a negatively charged electrode that is the source of electrons entering an electrical device
collector - the electrode in a transistor through which a primary flow of carriers leaves the region between the electrodes
conductor - a device designed to transmit electricity, heat, etc.
electrolytic cell - a cell containing an electrolyte in which an applied voltage causes a reaction to occur that would not occur otherwise (such as the breakdown of water into hydrogen and oxygen)
electron gun - the electrode that is the source of electrons in a cathode-ray tube or electron microscope; consists of a cathode that emits a stream of electrons and the electrostatic or electromagnetic apparatus that focuses it
