The presence of residual stresses in thermal oxide layers has been recognized for a long time. In the present work, the mechanical fields for chromia oxide are determined either by XRD or Raman spectroscopy. In addition, the microstructure of the chromia films is investigated ant its influence on the evolution of the stress release processes is analyzed.
