Abstract

In this work, the first electron backscattered diffraction patterns (EBSPs) were captured for a plutonium-gallium (Pu-Ga) alloy. The experimental techniques used for EBSP acquisition are described in detail. This demonstrated sample preparation and characterization technique is expected to be a powerful means to further understand phase transformation behavior, orientation relationships, and texture in the complicated Pu and Pu-alloy systems.
