Hydrogen Absorption in Metallic Glasses

  • Arnulf J. Maeland
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 76)


Metallic glasses have become an important class of new materials in recent years. By employing cooling rates in excess of 106 °C/sec, amorphous structures have been produced in many alloy systems over a wide range of compositions which, in some cases, encompasses intermetallic compound compositions. We have studied hydrogen absorption in such metallic glass systems and, where possible, compared the hydrogen absorption characteristics to those of the crystalline counterparts. The results are discussed with reference to the relative importance of electronic structure and crystal structure in hydrogen absorption.
