Abstract

Magnetic susceptibility measurements have been performed with deformed single-crystal Pd loaded with a low concentration of hydrogen. A diamagnetic contribution to the paramagnetic susceptibility of Pd has been observed below 30 K that is attributed to a condensed hydrogen phase at low temperature along dislocation cores in the deformed, single crystal Pd matrix.
