The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research, "It is empirically known for the AB(2) Laves compounds that hydrogen-induced-amorphization (HIA) takes place when the R-A/R-B exceeds 1.37. We find that, based on careful analyses of electron diffraction patterns and TEM images, the hydrogenation-processed microstructures of the (PrxMg1-x)Ni-2 compounds exceeding the critical ratio are not pure amorphous but composed of Ni nano-crystals embedded in an amorphous matrix of hydride PrH2."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "This provides a direct evidence of hydrogenation-induced micro-phase separation (HIMPS), and accordingly it is suggested that HIA believed so far should be attributed to HIMPS phenomenon."
