Abstract

As thicker films form at elevated temperatures, it is expected that the ionic mobility is much higher at higher temperatures. Not much is known about the semiconducting properties of the passive films of the given materials exposed to aqueous environments at elevated temperatures. This paper investigates on the semiconducting properties of iron and chromium metal specimens in pure water at 288°C by varying the dissolved oxygen contents which simulated the boiling water reactor (BWR) environments.
