The phenomenological model of non-equilibrium diffusion and release of hydrogen from metals under the effect of electron beam in the sub-threshold region is considered. It is shown that the radiation stimulates the release and diffusion of hydrogen at a rate, significantly exceeds the rate of thermal equilibrium processes in the metals. This can occur in the presence of long-lived, in a time scale of single phonon and electron relaxation, vibrationally excited H-bonds. The proposed model confirms the experimental results previously obtained. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Source
