The rates of hydrogen penetration from an aqueous solution of glycerin into thin films of vanadium dioxide in different phases have been compared. It has been found that the rate of hydrogen penetration into the metal phase of vanadium dioxide is at least one order of magnitude higher than that of hydrogen penetration into the semiconductor phase at the same temperature.

    We report on the evolution of the spacing and the character of misfit dislocations with increasing Ni overlayer thickness at an (001) Ni–Cu interface. At low Ni overlayer thicknesses (3 and 5 nm), most of the interface dislocations are 60° 1/2<110> glide dislocations, while Lomer edge...
