Oxygen partial pressure in the furnace was monitored with a thoria oxygen sensor. A digital video camera was used to film each experiment, and the contact angle was measured from high resolution still images captured from the film. The error in contact angle measurement is estimated to be no larger than ±2°. The furnace atmosphere was regulated by two mass flow controllers flowing nitrogen and hydrogen. Two types of sessile drop experiments were conducted. Tn the earliest experiments, the drop was simply held for eight hours in a constant atmosphere and the contact angle was measured as a function of time.
