Abstract:The giant intrinsic hysteresis as a function of hydrogen concentration x in the optical and electrical properties of the archetypal switchable mirror YHx is eliminated by alloying Y with the chemically similar La. The La1-zYzHx films with z≤0.67 are essentially hysteresis-free. The origin of the large hysteresis of alloys with z≥0.86 is the large uniaxial lattice expansion that accompanies their fcc to hexagonal phase transition in combination with lateral clamping.
