What is hydrogen embrittlement and what can be done to prevent it?

New video discussing latest publication of Dr. Baptiste Gault

August 19, 2020

Why does hydrogen affect the properties of a material? How can we measure hydrogen in a material? And is it possible to trap hydrogen in the material to prevent it from damaging the material’s microstructure?

Dr. Baptiste Gault heads the research group “Atom Probe Tomography” in the department of Microstructure Physics and Alloy Design. He gave an interview about one of his recent publications about hydrogen embrittlement to the film agency Latest Thinking.
