The entry and transport of hydrogen in polycrystalline nickel implanted with various elements (He, Ar, B, P, S, Bi, Ni, Y, Pt, As, Pb and Sb) has been investigated in a fluence range of 1 x 10 14 to 2 x 10 17 ions/cm 2 using an electrochemical permeation technique and etching technique, where the elements used are categorized as follows: inert elements (He and Ar), the substrate element (Ni), metalloids (P, S, Sb and As), a catalytic element (Pt) and the other elements (Pb, Bi, Y and B). It was

The results obtained were qualitatively explained in terms of gas bubbles and defects generated by implantation, compressive stress, catalytic effect, the formation of amorphous phase and so on.
