Abstract : The extent to which oxidation stabilization can be applied to bulk mesophase was studied by oxidizing specimens of well-defined microstructure that were produced by magnetic orientation or by uniaxial deformation. Stabilization depths approaching 50 micrometers were observed, proceeding from the surface and from cracks that have access to the atmosphere.
