Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


New ternary Laves phase structures with compositions of MgYNi4, MgCaNi4 and CaYNi4 were prepared, and the relationship between structures and hydriding properties were studied in detail. Only in case of MgYNi4, Mg and Y were found to be ordered. The control of their order/disorder in Laves phase structures may provide the hydriding properties with higher hydrogen concentrations and flatter plateau regions.
