Applications of SIMS to the Study of a Corrosion Process — Oxidation of Uranium by Water
Corrosion of metals is an extremely important field with great economic and engineering implications. To effectively combat corrosion one must understand the processes occurring. This paper shows the utility of SIMS data for elucidating the processes occurring in one particular corrosion process--the oxidation of uranium by water--and for validating a theoretical model.
