IN-SITU OBSERVATION OF ErD2 FORMATION DURING D2 LOADING VIA NEUTRON DIFFRACTION

Abstract

In an effort to better understand the structural changes occurring during hydrogen loading of erbium target materials, we have performed in-situ D2 loading of erbium metal (powder) at temperature (450C) with simultaneous neutron diffraction analysis. This experiment tracked the conversion of Er metal to the  erbium deuteride (solid-solution) phase and then… (More)
