Abstract : Electronic specific heat coefficients, gamma, have been measured for five samples of the V(1-x)Cr(x)H(y) system. Results on two samples with y=0 agree with known values of gamma for V(1-x)Cr(x) alloys. All hydride samples, where y is not = 0, have a decrease in gamma compared to non-hydride samples. Results indicate that the rigid band model is useful in qualitative interpretation of the effects of hydriding transition metals.
