Paper Abstract

Preliminary results on the hydrogenation characteristics of vanadium-implanted magnesium films are presented. Magnesium films were prepared by vacuum evaporation. Some of them were then implanted with vanadium in order to improve their kinetics and lower the temperature of operation. The structural and hydrogen sorption properties of pure magnesium as well as ion-implanted magnesium films are described. The effects of vanadium ion implantation on hydrogen diffusion will be discussed.
