A new guideline for the development of novel functional hydrides - Elucidation of the formation process of perovskite-type hydrides -

2013/03/07

 A research group from the Institute for Materials Research at Tohoku University, in collaboration with the Advanced Institute for Materials Research at Tohoku University and the Quantum Beam Science Directorate of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency, elucidated the formation process of perovskite-type hydrides using the high-resolution synchrotron radiation X-ray diffraction at SPring-8 for the first time in the world. While the hydrides have been anticipated to serve as a variety of functional materials, there are a few reports on their synthesis. A new insight obtained in this study will accelerate the development of energy materials with functionalities, such as hydrogen storage and superconductivity.
