Scope: Numerous energy generation and transportation systems constructed of high-performance metal alloys are routinely exposed to hydrogen. The integrity of these systems is often challenged by a variety of hydrogen degradation modes affecting both structural components and storage media. The hydrogen-material interactions that ultimately lead to degradation occur across multiple length scales. Therefore, of particular interest for this special topic are studies involving multiscale experimental and theoretical methods for probing hydrogen-materials interactions in complex materials systems.
