Abstract

Phase-shifting interferometry microscopy is applied to the analysis of corrosion pitting of a 304 stainless steel (with and without molybdenum-ion implantation) in NaCl solution. Owing to the dimensions of the pits two kinds of pit can be defined. The statistical analysis of the specimen-inspected field shows that small pits of area < 50 μ m2 are by far the most frequent. The different sizes of the pits can be related to the different stages of pit formation, pre-pitting and growth.
