Results of surface analysis are presented, investigating the structure of passive layers developed on the surface of stainless steel tubes treated in a LWR (light water cooled nuclear reactor) primary circuit and tested in model experiments using different aqueous media and pretreatment methods. Ar+ ion XPS depth profiles show remarkable differences in surface layer structure for different treatments.
