Conference paper

Abstract

The properties of metallic and saline hydrides and their corresponding deuterides and tritides of possible interest to controlled fusion reactor technology are reviewed. Topics discussed include the effect of hydrogen on the strength of structural materials, the solubilities of hydrogen and its isotopes in metals, the Li-H system, and the use of metal hydrides as hydrogen storage and shield materials.
