Using a modified technique of transmission electron microscopy, the properties of oxide films formed on aluminum foil by heat treatment in various oxidizing atmospheres at temperatures from 400 to 600°C have been studied. Above 400°C crystalline oxide forms by nucleation and growth, and has a basically fcc lattice of parameter 7.9±0.15 A.
