Abstract

As the role of hydrogen in an increasing number of metallurgical problems is recognized, the need for techniques which can qualitatively and quantitatively determine the distribution of hydrogen in solids has increased. Most microanalytic methods not applicable to hydrogen analysis and a few which can detect hydrogen suffer from low spatial resolution and/or low concentration sensitivity. A technique which has a high sensitivity for hydrogen analysis and relatively high spatial resolution is Ion Microprobe Mass Spectrometry. In the present note, the application of this method to various aspects of hydrogen behavior in niobium is discussed and the ability of the method to determine both hydrogen concentration gradients and the presence of hydrides is demonstrated.
