Silicon oxynitride films, made by reacting porous, sol-gel derived silicon dioxide with ammonia, were oxidized in dry O2 between 800 and 1000°C. Film oxidation was characterized by ellipsometry and secondary ion mass spectrometry. Increasing the nitrogen content of the film increased oxidation resistance of the film.
