Giant Magnetic Field Effects on Electroluminescence in Electrochemical Cells



original image

Giant magnetic field effects on electroluminescence intensity with a magnitude of 400% are demonstrated by using Lorentz force effects in an electrochemical co-reaction with planar electrodes. A magnetic field increases the ion penetration in the diffusion layer in the electrochemical reaction through Lorentz force effects and greatly enhances the electrogenerated chemiluminescence intensity (ECL), leading to giant magnetic field effects in liquid states.
