Mg2(Fe0.5Co0.5) elemental powder mixtures were processed by reactive ball milling in a H2 (orD2) atmosphere at about 50 bar. The changes of pressure were monitored during milling and hydrogen absorption was detected within the first 10 h of milling. X-ray and neutron powder diffraction analysis, followed by Rietveld refinement, suggests an almost complete… CONTINUE READING
