In order to reliably increase the throughput of materials measured for hydrogen storage properties, a complete high-throughput characterization scheme has been developed that accurately measures the hydrogen storage properties of materials in quantities ranging from 10 nanogram to 1 g. Initial identification of promising materials is realized by rapidly screening thin-film composition spread and thickness wedge samples using normalized IR emissivity imaging. The hydrogen storage properties of promising samples are confirmed through measurements on single composition films with a high sensitivity (resolution
