Hydrides are an important class of materials in many technological areas including nuclear technology, powder metallurgy, and heterogeneous catalysis to obtain novel magnetic materials. All primary research directions of modern power engineering involve the use of hydrogen. Metal hydride technologies based on the principle of “absorption-desorption” of hydrogen are used for storage, transport, purification of hydrogen, its extraction from gas mixtures, and electrochemical power sources. In addition, high-temperature conventional superconductivity has been demonstrated in hydride materials, including a critical temperature of 287 K in carbonaceous sulfur hydride. This Special Topic aims to collect all emerging and established hydride technologies to further this rapidly expanding field.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Superconductivity of hydrides
- Quantum phenomena in hydrides
- Magnetism in transition metal hydrides
- Hydrides for energy applications (hydrogen storage)
- Thermodynamic properties of metal hydrides (catalysis)

Submission and acceptance criteria:
Manuscripts considered for publication in Journal of Applied Physics are expected to meet the journal’s standard of acceptance: to report on original and timely results that significantly advance understanding in contemporary applied physics. Material that is exclusively review in nature is not considered for publication. Manuscripts submitted for consideration in this Special Topic must meet the same criteria and will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process. The Editorial Team of Journal of Applied Physics will issue final decisions on the submitted manuscripts. Manuscripts will publish immediately upon acceptance.
