The introduction of AlO as the diffusing species can be seen as an attempt to bridge the gap between the two scientific communities: those working on the oxidation of metals and those working on the oxidation of silicon. The attempt is, however, not successful and would have been more successful if the Wagner theory [O. Wagner, Z. Phys. Chem. Abt. B 21, 25 (1993)] would have been used to evaluate the mechanisms. There is also a lack of agreement with the two-stage oxidation experiment, oxidation first in O-16 and then in O-18. The experimental O-18 profile in the oxides formed cannot be explained by the diffusion of AlO, so it is unlikely that AlO is the diffusing species during oxidation.
