Deuterium and hydrogen migration and release have been studied in stainless steel, niobium, palladium during accelerated electrons and 14N ions. It was shown that radiation stimulates the intensive release of electrolytically introduced deuterium from stainless steel, Pd and Nb. The mechanism release of deuterium from metals under the influence of radiation released with accumulative properties of internal D(H) atmosphere and influence of ionizing radiation on potential surface barrier preventing formation of D2 (H2), molecules and its desorption in gas phase.
