Well, much to my chagrin, there ain't no phosphorus in tritium tubes/vials. The tubes/vials (borosilicate glass) are coated with thin films of various PHOPHORS, which is a term for a wide variety of mainly zinc sulfide compound mixed with an array of other metals to provide various colors, sensitivities, etc. You can read about this stuff for hours.........Tritium, Phorphors, Trasers, et al
