Abstract

A Hard X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (HAXPES) characterisation of the passivation layers formed by electrochemical polarisation of Al–Cr–Fe complex metallic alloys is presented. By employing X-ray excitation energies from 2.3 to 10.0 keV, the depth distributions of Al- and Cr-oxide and hydroxide species in the (Al,Cr)-containing passive layers could be determined. Simultaneous analyses of the shallow Al 2s and deep Al 1s core level lines (respectively, more bulk- and surface-sensitive) provided complementary information to effectively determine the depth-resolved contributions of hydroxide and oxide species within the passivation layer. A Cr threshold concentration of 18 (at.%) was found for effective passivation at pH 1.
