Oxidation of erosion products was studied by means of the Mössbauer spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction methods when the strip of stainless steel was cut with the laser. Different content of wustite and chromium doped magnetite Fe3-xCrxO4 was found in the samples of erosion products depending on the place where the erosion products were collected in relation to the cutting slot. Conversion electron Mössbauer spectroscopy data showed that more magnetite was found at the surface while wustite distributes in the whole volume of particles of erosion products.
