Abstract: JRC-IE focuses its hydrogen and fuel cell related work on pre-normative research covering the development and improvement of test, performance characterization and numerical simulation methods in the areas of hydrogen storage (gaseous and solid state), hydrogen sensors, fuel cell systems, and hydrogen safety. To underpin this pre-normative research, IE also performs more basic research in some selected topics such as application of nuclear methods for characterization of storage materials. These activities are in part carried out in collaboration with international partners under FP6 NESSHY project. Recent experiments performed at ILL, FRMII and ISIS revealed deviations from published reactions paths in the Li and Li-Mg imide/amide systems. A project investigating the microstructural changes during long-term cycling of Al-doped LaNi5 utilised the PAS (Positron Annihilation Spectroscopy) capabilities at Petten HFR. Thereby the formation of several types of defects and their dependence on the Al content could be determined.
