Decomposition behaviour of blowing agent (TiH2, ZrH2)

Temperature dependent gas evolution studied using mass spectroscopy, phase transformation in blowing agent during heat-treatment studied in-situ by synchrotron-based X-ray diffraction

Figure 1: Density plot of diffracted intensities during decomposition of ZrH2 occurred while heating followed in-situ by angle dispersive diffraction at KMC2 beam line, Bessy.
