Description

We use neutron elastic, inelastic, and quasi-elastic scattering techniques to study hydrogen locations and dynamics in materials necessary for advancing the Hydrogen Economy. Detailed information on hydrogen locations and binding potentials in a lattice is extracted as a function of the hydrogen concentration. This information provides insight into the chemistry and physics of hydrogen adsorption/absorption, which is then used to identify the most promising avenues for the synthesis of new materials that push the boundaries of hydrogen gravimetric and volumetric capacities.
