The localized motion of hydrogen in TaV2 revealed by nuclear magnetic resonance experiments has been studied by quasielastic neutron scattering measurements on TaV2H0.6 and TaV2H1.1 in the temperature range 10-300 K. The behaviour of the elastic incoherent structure factor in the Q range 0.09-3.69 Å-1 is consistent with the model of H jumps between six [Ta2V2] sites on a ring with radius r≈1.0 Å. This model is also supported by neutron diffraction measurements. The hopping rate of hydrogen is found to depend strongly on H concentration, decreasing with increasing H content.
