The evolution of structural and phase state and hydrogen release from the ultrafine-grained hydrogenated zirconium Zr-1Nb alloy during vacuum annealing and electron beams exposure were studied. The use of electron beam irradiation for hydrogen degassing is shown to decrease the temperature of active hydrogen release by 100-200 K and/or reduce the time required for hydrogen degassing from the alloy to concentrations corresponding to technical standards.
