Hydrogen in niobium has been studied for many years for reasons motivated both from a basic as well as an applied point of view. On the one hand it has generated interest within the theoretical physics community because it is a very close physical realization of the theoretical lattice-gas model. On the other hand, it is also studied as a model substance by those interested in the practical aspects of hydrogen storage and other applications of metal-hydrogen systems.
