Thermally grown Al2O3 scales formed on a FeCrAl alloy were successfully analyzed using pulsed green laser atom probe tomography. Two types of atom probe tomography specimens, the “thin oxide” type: a thin Al2O3 layer (<100 nm) with underlying metal (1 μm), and the “thick oxide” type: only with Al2O3 (1 μm), were prepared and analyzed. It was found that the thin oxide type yields poorer mass resolution due to a combined effect of laser absorption and thermal conduction effects. Application of a relatively low laser energy yields a better mass resolution and increased multiple events, however, more exact quantification results. Although no other oxide phase than Al2O3 is expected to form, some iron-oxygen and chromium-oxygen molecular ions were recorded at the Al2O3/metal interface due to the large change in evaporation field over this zone.
