Abstract

We have developed an infrared imaging setup enabling in situ infrared images to be acquired, and expanded on capabilities of an infrared imaging as a high-throughput screening technique, determination of a critical thickness of a Pd capping layer which significantly blocks infrared emission from below, enhancement of sensitivity to hydrogenation and dehydrogenation by normalizing raw infrared intensity of a Mg thin film to an inert reference, rapid and systematic screening of hydrogenation and dehydrogenation properties of a Mg-Ni composition spread covered by a thickness gradient Pd capping layer, and detection of formation of a Mg2 Si phase in a Mg thin film on a thermally oxidized Si substrate during annealing.
