In recent years, has been an increasing interest in the use of magnesium and magnesium based alloys as hydrogen-storage materials, because they can store more hydrogen by weight than most of the other currently know metal hydrides (MgH2 is equivalent to 7.6 wt.% hydrogen). It becomes clear that in the new generation of advanced materials a proper engineering of the alloy composition, surface properties, microstructure, grain size etc. is needed to design and control the adsorption-desorption properties of hydrogen [1,2]. Nanocrystalline hydrides are of a great interest [3,4].
In this situation, we have planned to apply plasma activated physical vapor deposition nanotechnology methods for synthesis of thin magnesium alanate film material and to study the correlation between changes of physical structure and chemical features.
