Special Session 10
Continued annually since DSL-2010. This session discusses broad aspects of hydrogen (H)-related kinetics and H-induced phenomena in materials from a fundamental viewpoint. The aim is to obtain a deeper understanding of dynamical processes such as the atomic-level mechanisms of the reversible hydrogen transportation across the gas/solid interface relevant to hydrogen (hydride) storage, hydrogen purification by permeation, hydrogen isotope retention in plasma-facing materials, and hydrogenation catalysis. Emphasis is also placed on interactions of hydrogen with the micro- or defect structure in the volume of (nano-)materials that can induce drastic physical (mechanical or electrical) property changes but still lack adequate explanations.
In addition to welcoming all subject below, special highlights of the 2017 Session are direct detection techniques for hydrogen (diffusion) dynamics as well as hydrogen-induced electronic effects in semiconductor devices. Both experimentalists and theoreticians are strongly encouraged to participate.
