Photoemission studies of energy levels in the palladium-hydrogen system

Abstract

Photoemission studies of the Pd/H system show a band of hydrogen-induced energy states centered at 1 eV below the bottom of Pd-derived d bands of width 4.4 eV. These results show that the widely accepted simple "proton model" of Pd/H is misleading. Our augmented-plane-wave calculations of PdH, Pd4H3, and Pd4H exhibit these lowlying states and also explain why the added number of electrons (0.6) in β-phase PdH exceeds the number of d-band holes (0.36) in Pd. © 1971 The American Physical Society.
