Abstract

Hydrogen energy is a burgeoning field of alternative energy research, and displays significant potential as a clean, abundant power source. A hypothetical hydrogen energy infrastructure requires many aspects of micromanagement in order to facilitate efficiency: not the least of which is the issue of hydrogen storage. This experiment was conducted with the purpose of analyzing the hydrogen-absorbing properties of a thin diamond-like carbon (DLC) film. Our experiment is a direct follow-up to prior work conducted by Andrew Moore, a graduate student of Western Michigan University, in which the same DLC film was imbued with hydrogen and subsequently evacuated by thermal conditioning.
