When dealing with corroded objects, it is necessary to identify the corrosion products to develop a proper treatment for this particular object. Using X-ray diffraction is still suitable to do the phase composition analysis of the material; however it does the analysis of the material in bulk. It is also possible to use SEM to analyze the structure of the corrosion layers on a cross-section by EBSD method; however this method is time consuming. It is more suitable to use Raman spectroscopy when studying the structure of corrosion layers. Using proper equipment, such as Raman microscope it is possible to do not only analysis of precisely given point, but it is also possible to do mapping (both 1D and 2D) of the cross-section. Taking map of surface also does need time, but is definitely less time consuming compared to EBSD method.Keywords: Corrosion, cross-section, mapping, micro-Raman spectroscopy
