Trapping of multiple hydrogen atoms in a tungsten monovacancy from first principles

Osawa, Kazuhito*; Goto, Junya*; Yamakami, Masahiro*; Yamaguchi, Masatake  ; Yagi, Masatoshi*

The configuration of multiple hydrogen atoms trapped in a tungsten monovacancy is investigated using first-principles calculations. Unlike previous computational studies, which have reported that hydrogen in BCC metal monovacancies occupies octahedral interstitial sites, it is found that the stable sites shift towards tetrahedral interstitial sites as the number of hydrogen atoms increases. As a result, a maximum of twelve hydrogen atoms can become trapped in a tungsten monovacancy.
