Proton magnetic resonance spectra of Zr0.5CuyNi0.5-yH1 metallic glass samples with 0 ≤ y ≤ 0.3 were measured in the temperature range 77 K to 400 K and at 8, 28.5, 87.6 and 88.5 MHz frequencies. The data of the free-induction decay (FID) signal were compiled and Fourier transformed by a SMIS NMR spectrometer. The temperature dependence of the line shapes shows three distinctly different features: (i) in the temperature range 400 K to 270 K the spectrum is a motionally narrowed Lorentzian line; (ii) in the temperature range 270 K to 140 K the spectrum consists of a narrow Lorentzian component and a substantially wider Gaussian one; (iii) in the temperature range 140 K to 77 K, the spectrum is a "two-peaked" line. The distance between the two peaks (splitting) was found to be independent of the temperature and the frequency, that means that the low-temperature spectrum is probably the Pake doublet of hydrogen pairs. From the analysis of the splitting of the Pake doublet, a proton-proton distance of 0.167 nm was estimated. This distance corresponds to a transition metal mediated hydrogen pairing.
