Compared with powder materials, one advantage of Mg-based thin films is that their structures can be easily tailored to improve the hydrogen storage properties. According to the reported studies, the main approach to improve the properties of thick Mg–Pd films is preparing Mg alloy films by magnetron co-sputtering. The alloying elements are commonly transition metals or rare earth elements. Due to the large weight of transition metals and rare earth elements, the overall hydrogen storage capacity of Mg-based films will be affected. Moreover, most studies of thick Mg–Pd films are conducted under high temperatures and pressures.
