Bruker diffractometer with IµS for testing materials
The closest incoatec microfocus source IµS is located just a few steps away from the incoatec premises on the grounds of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG). Within their programme “Advanced Engineering Materials” nanostructured materials are developed for hydrogen storage, therefore using a Bruker diffractometer with an IµS for testing the materials.
The scientists have now developed a new chemical system for storing solid hydrogen. The new material combination impedes reactions leading to “dead end” products, being inactive in further charging cycles. The new material opens up excellent perspectives for long-term usable energy storage. So a milestone on the pathway to novel hydrogen storage materials has been reached.
