The storage of hydrogen is one of the main problems that needs to be solved before hydrogen can become a real alternative to oil in mobile applications. Physisorption of hydrogen in an adsorbate is one of the possible solutions to this problem. This thesis studies the adsorption of hydrogen in Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWNTs). Neutron scattering techniques are used to probe the possible adsorption sites and the interaction between the hydrogen and the nanotubes at those sites.
