The models of non-equilibrium stimulated diffusion and H and its isotopes release from metals under ionizing radiation were considered. It is supposed that H-release acceleration from metals under radiation is connected with non-equilibrium oscillated excitation states of H-subsystem in metals and decrease of surface potential barrier of desorpting molecules. Specifically it was shown that under radiation deuterium diffusion coefficient in Pd was increased 30 times as much in comparison with non-irradiated sample.
