Extract

A high-temperature crystal growth experiment produced discrete singlecrystal products of Allr and IrSi. The preparation, and examination of these phases is described within. This project is part of a materials compatibility study relating to radioisotopic heat sources. These heat sources are comprised of a PuO2 fuel pellet encapsulated in an Ir alloy containment shell. Thorium is introduced as an additive within the Ir to maintain ductility. Si and P are picked up inadvertently in the fuel processing. The compatibility of the heat sources with Al is of interest because of potential interactions with the Al alloy hardware associated with the heat source environment.
