Alloying very light or low melting point metals with heavier or high melting metals is quite challenging, and conventional pouring/casting won't work. The higher melting metal freezes first, and if denser would sink in the melt and exclude the low melting metal.

One method is to use levitation melting followed by a rapid quench. An alternative would involve a powdered metal approach with hot-isostatic pressure.

Does it have to be pure Mo-Ga? and in what proportions?
