Mg nanoparticles covered with the Pd nanoparticles (Pd/Mg NPs) have been fabricated by the gas evaporation method using He gas. The coaxial formation of the Mg and Pd NPs enables to fabricate the Pd/Mg NPs. The surfaces of the Pd and Mg NPs are quite clean because only pure He gas has been used during the fabrication of the NPs. The surface and interface chemical states of the Pd/Mg NPs have been investigated by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) without the exposure to the air. The XPS investigation has revealed that the formation of the interfacial alloy state between the Mg and Pd NPs. The Pd/Mg NPs can absorb the hydrogen at the room temperature by the hydrogenation of the most of the Mg atoms inside the Pd/Mg NPs. [DOI: 10.1380/ejssnt.2016.150]
