A method referred as Hydrogen Production by Infrared assisted Electrolysis (HyPIR) is presented in this work. Two graphite electrodes are immersed in electrolytic cell containing 0.517 g of NaCl and 7 ml of ethanol C2H5OH solution which act as supplements for a partial oxidation reaction. Erbium YAG laser with wavelength of 2.94 mm and 57.6 mJ energy per pulse at a pulse rate of 4 Hz is illuminated directly on the electrolytic solution. The irradiating light facilitates the dissociation of water by stretching the inter-atomic hydrogen-oxygen bonds in the electrolytic solutions and directly increase the rate of hydrogen yields.
