In order to apply hydrogen-absorbing alloys to new energy carrier uses, such as hydrogen storage tanks or Ni-MH batteries, a drastic increase in the hydrogen capacity of these alloys is required. For years, intermetallic compounds or single-phase alloys have been studied as hydrogen-absorbing materials. New approaches to alloy design, relating to multiphase alloys, are proposed and verified. These approaches help to identify a new structure on a multiphase alloy. As a result, a new hydrogen-absorbing alloy, consisting of a nano-structure having a large hydrogen capacity and good desorbing properties, was found.
