Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

In-situ hydrogen charging (discharging) process was realized in Pd 0.75Ag0.25-H alloys and simultaneous hydrogen concentration and nuclear spin-spin relaxation time measurements were done. Concentration-gradient driven diffusion coefficient was estimated from the hydrogen concentration-charging (discharging) time curve and data for the intrinsic diffusivity were deduced from the spin-spin relaxation time. Two-component spin-spin relaxation was found in the whole hydrogen concentration range, and at high H concentration, one of those is attributed to the hydrogen atoms embedded in the α the other one in the β phase. The diffusional motion is localized up to 105 - 106 intrinsic steps and there is no hydrogen atom exchange between the α and β phases on the time scale of spin-spin relaxation.
