Influence of intrinsic electric fields on passive film chemistry and structure Academic Article uri icon


  • Alloys and their oxides are a very important class of materials on which modern society depends. Yet, today we do not have an adequate fundamental physical-chemical model of how oxides evolve on alloys under oxidizing conditions. In a research program examining the parameters, temperature and O2 activity, which control the driving potential for alloy oxidation, a new extended model for alloy oxidation has been developed that allows for prediction of the resulting passive layer structures. © 1995.
