    Abstract

    The application of conversion electron Mössbauer spectroscopy (CEMS) to the oxidation of an ultra-thin 310 stainless steel foil is presented. It is shown that during oxidation the foil deviates from the expected oxidation behaviour, derived from thick film kinetics, due to the effects of chromium depletion. Evidence is presented for the observation, in the spectra, of chromium depletion. The experimentally derived time-to-failure is compared with that predicted by theory. © 1986.
