sounds like the alloy did not get correctly mixed prior to the
melting. I understand it
has to be done in a good metallurgy lab setup, with inert atmosphere,
and both very well-mixed powdered metals have to be take to the
highest melting point so that good even alloying occurs.
It was obviously something we could not do ourselves.
encourage you to see if you can get a really decent piece of that
alloy made. Understand, I
never did the experiment because I never had the material.
The notion was to apply the voltage (sharp rise time, as you
used) for less than a millisecond, and then switch the source away,
leaving the not-yet-relaxed electrons excited.
might also help to discuss this much further with a really good
metallurgist who also knows electrodynamics.
will hope for your success. Thanks
for filling me in.
