The influence of amorphous Al2O3 coating on the hydrogen uptake properties of materials
2008 (English)In: Journal of Alloys and Compounds, ISSN 0925-8388, Vol. 464, no 1-2, L13-L16 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
An experimental exploration of the transport rate of hydrogen through amorphous Al2O3 layers is presented. Significant changes in the transport rate were observed when changing the thickness of the oxide from 1 to 3 nm. By coating the oxide with a catalytically active Pd layer, a fast dissociation of hydrogen is allowed, enabling a separation between the limitation imposed by dissociation and the transport through the oxide.
