Abstract

We report on X-ray diffraction measurements performed during the charging of a palladium cathode with deuterium by the electrolysis of a LiOD-heavy water solution to determine the lattice parameter. In this way we are able to study the dynamics of the process and to determine the D/Pd final ratio of the sample. Up to now we have studied three samples, which have shown very different behaviours. The estimated bulk deuterium concentration was then checked by degassing the cathode in a known volume.
