RayP, hydrogen atoms are not very polarizable, and hydrogen is very light and it can tunnel through a small barrier.
It can also be applied to many polarizable objects.
However, Master Chief's polarizable faceplate will, sadly, lead to people knowing his face/becoming almost invisble by making your character full-black.
The challenge now is to find materials that are easily polarizable under an applied electric field.
"We have made such an attempt, and we have proposed a new principle for the design of hydrogen storage materials which involves materials with low-coordinated, non-metal anions that are highly polarizable in an applied electric field," he said.
Research will be reported on electromagnetic wave propagation in mixed materials with inclusions that contain polarizable molecules, ceramic impurities, air bubbles, and fiber glass which support scattering centers, permanent electric dipoles, induced dipoles, and high frequency plasmons.

Its high energy storage capability is attributed to the highly polarizable barium atoms, which contribute to the enhanced permittivity, and the alkali-free composition, which inhibits energy loss.
So, using the polarizable model, they calculated where the electrons congregated and the resulting structures created on the surface of the water.
The team found that the polarizable approach provided better results, more closely matching the data from the x-ray reflectivity experiments.
