This paper reports on an analytical method capable of measuring the extent of the oxidation process in AlN. ELNES is used to measure the percentage of Al which has been oxidised in local regions of AlN powder. Oxidation of AlN powder in air at room temperature was found to result in the formation of N-2 gas and a surface oxidation layer of Al2O3.
