Excerpt: It is difficult to believe that in 1999, more than 50 years after the Manhattan Project, the authors as well as other scientists from Russia and the United States still disagreed about the stability of the o-phase plutonium gallium (Pu-Ga) alloys used in nuclear weapons. Typically, the face-centered cubic (FCC) o-phase of plutonium, which is malleable and easily shaped, is retained down to ambient temperatures by the addition of gallium or aluminum. But do those o-phase alloys remain stable for decades or do they decompose into the denser, brittle ?-phase and something else at ambient temperature? A crucial part of the answer lies in the equilibrium binary phase diagrams for the Pu-Ga and plutonium-aluminum (Pu-Al) systems.
