An upgraded high-vacuum installation and procedure for studying diffusion of hydrogen in a BT1-0 titanium alloy membrane during irradiation of a sample by an electron beam with an energy of 10-120 keV in the scanning and stationary modes and with simultaneous electrolytic saturation are described. For this purpose, deflecting electrodes intended for scanning the beam are additionally integrated into the installation. The mass spectrum of the residual gases was recorded by the partial pressure sensors with a sensitivity as high as 10-13 Pa. The diffusion coefficient of hydrogen measured under the scanning action of the electron beam on the titanium membrane is given.
