Abstract. The effective mass $\mass$ of the nonrelativistic quantum electrodynamics with spin 1/2 is investigated. Let $\mass/m =1 + a_1(\La/m) e^2+ a_2(\La/m) e^4+ {\mathcal O}(e^6)$, where $m$ denotes the bare mass. $a_1(\La/m)\sim \log(\La/m)$ as $\La\rightarrow \infty$ is well known. Also $a_2(\La/m)\sim\sqrt{\La/m}$ is established for a spinless case. It is shown that ${a_2(\La/m)}\sim {(\La/m)^2}$ in the case including spin $1/2$.
