We present experimental data concerning the tunneling density of states of two superconducting Pd1−yNiyDx films with different Ni concentrations and different Tc. The data concern the acoustical and optical contribution to the electron-phonon coupling parameter λ, the electron-electron parameter μ*, and the energy position of the optical mode. The results are discussed in light of the differences existing between the electronic and atomic structure of PdH and NiH.
