The method of positron lifetime measurement was used to analyse the influence of a magnetic field on the kinetics of corrosion defect formation in near-surface layers of iron, titanium as well as S20 and S0H18N9 steel grades. The listed metals, which belong to ferro- and paramagnetic materials, have different sensitivity to corrosion. It was found that not only the presence of a magnetic field, but also its direction influence the dimensions and the concentration of defects formed during corrosion.
