Summary:  It is proven that the spin 1/2 Schrödinger operator $\tilde H$ with a constant magnetic field is the square of a sum of mutually strongly anticommuting self-adjoint operators. As an application, by using this formula, the essential spectrum of $\tilde H$ with a vector potential in a class is identified. The class contains a vector potential to which Shigekawa’s theorem (I. Shigekawa, J. Funct. Anal. 101(1991), 255-285) cannot be applied.
