Unmasking corrosion to design better protective thin films for metals

Corrosion of metals is an age-old problem, but they are normally protected from catastrophic damage by naturally forming, super-thin oxide films. Traditionally, these protective films have been viewed as simple oxides of well-anticipated compounds. Now researchers have found the protective films develop new structures and compositions that depend on how fast the oxide film grows.
