The Hydrogen Materials Group (HMG) is part of the School of Metallurgy and Materials. The group was formed in early 2005, when the Applied Alloy Chemistry Group split into the HMG and the Magnets Group.
Major research areas:
Development of novel materials for solid-state hydrogen storage
Fabrication of dense-metal membranes for hydrogen purification
Use of hydrogen in the microstructural processing of materials
H2 energy demonstration projects (e.g. PROTIUM Hydrogen Canal Boat)
