Theoretical Studies of Dilute Hydrogen Impurities in Palladium
There have been numerous theoretical investigations of hydride systems in recent years due in large part to their technological importance as energy storage materials1 and their possible potential as high transition temperature (T c ) superconductors.2,3 Palladium hydride is one of the more studied materials primarily due to the relatively high T c ~ 10 K for the stoichiometric β-phase material, especially since bulk fcc Pd metal does not superconduct.
