With this data and apparatus, I have derived a 2nd order differential equation that relates the surface energy to the measured quantities such that I collected surfaces energies for over 35 specimens in the calcia-zirconia and yttria- zirconia systems for the first time. From the results, it was found that the monoclinic polymorph had the largest surface energy in the range of 1.

With the measured surface energy data, collected for the first time, we can create a nano-grain phase diagram similar to a bulk phase diagram that shows the stable polymorph as a function of dopant concentration and grain size using the bulk enthalpy data collected from high temperature oxide melt drop solution calorimetry. The phase diagrams show that pure zirconia will transform into tetragonal and cubic polymorphs from the monoclinic one at 7 and 5 nm respectively which confirms the experimental observations.

The results are stabiliezd predictive tools successfully applied in the nCZ and nYZ systems to a high degree of accuracy and adds a new development to conventional bulk phase diagrams. These diagrams should be the basis for nanotechnological efforts in nCZ and nYZ based systems, and suggest similar efforts are needed in other nano systems to pursue zicronia in depth understanding and optimization of nanomaterials. After working on the theoretical aspects of phase stabilitythe focus of the research will shift to producing dense samples to measure observable czlcia such as oxygen conduction and mechanical hardness.

However, producing said samples with the nanocrystalline grain sizes has also been challenging as conventional sintering requires high temperatures which, as a consequence. Phase Stabilization of Zirconia. When mixing the alumina and zirconia powdersit is not necessary to have zirconia in any particular phase to achieve When mixed with alumina powder, zirconia powder can be in cubic, tetragonal or 20 monoclinic phases.

Electrodeposition of thin yttria- stabilized zirconia layers using glow-discharge plasma. A novel process for preparation of thin yttria- stabilized zirconia YSZ layers was developed. This process differs from other vapor-phase deposition methods in that a dc bias circuit, separate from the plasma-generation circuit, is used for the electrodeposition process.

Energetics of zirconia stabilized by cation and nitrogen substitution. Tetragonal and cubic zirconia are used in advanced structural ceramics, fuel cells, oxygen sensors, nuclear waste ceramics and zirconis other applications.

These zirconia phases are stabilized at room temperature relative to monoclinic phase for pure zirconia by cation and nitrogen substitution. This work is aimed at a better understanding of the mechanisms of stabilization of the high-temperature zirconia. Experimental data are produced on the energetics of zirconia stabilized by yttria and calciaenergetics of nitrogen-oxygen substitution in zirconia and cation doped zirconiacalcua energetics of x-ray amorphous zirconia.

High-temperature oxide melt solution enables direct measurement of enthalpies of formation of these refractory oxides.

Positive entropy of mixing in YSZ and ccalcia enthalpy of long range ordering in calciw. The enthalpy of oxygen-nitrogen substitution, DeltaHO-N, in zirconium oxynitrides is a linear function of nitrogen content. X-ray amorphous zirconia is Durability of zirconia thermal-barrier ceramic coatings on air-cooled turbine blades in cyclic jet engine operation.

Thermal barrier ceramic coatings of stabilized zirconia over a bond coat of Ni Cr Al Y were tested for durability on air cooled turbine rotor blades in a research turbojet engine. Zirconia stabilized with either yttria, magnesia, stabilizde calcia was investigated. On the basis of durability and processing cost, the yttria stabilized zirconia was considered the best of the three coatings investigated. Phonon anharmonicity of monoclinic zirconia and yttrium- stabilized zirconia. We reported temperature-dependent phonon densities of states DOS and Raman spectra obtained at elevated temperatures.


However, substantial anharmonicity was found at elevated temperatures, especially for phonon modes dominated by the motions of oxygen atoms. YSZ also has a larger vibrational entropy than monoclinic zirconia.

Synthesis and thermal stability of zirconia and yttria- stabilized zirconia microspheres. Zirconia microparticles produced by sol-gel synthesis have great potential for photonic applications.

To this end, identifying synthetic methods that yield reproducible control over size uniformity is important.

Phase transformations during thermal cycling can disintegrate the particles. Therefore, understanding the aclcia driving these transformations is essential for enabling high-temperature applications.

Particle morphology is expected to influence particle processability and stability.

Yttria-doping should improve the thermal stability of the particles, as it does in bulk zirconia. Zirconia and YSZ particles were synthesized by improved sol-gel approaches using fatty acid stabilizers.

In situ XRD revealed that the transition from stabiliized amorphous to tetragonal phase was accompanied by relief in microstrain and the transition from tetragonal to monoclinic was correlated with the tetragonal grain size. Early crystallization and smaller initial grain sizes, which depend on the precursors used for particle synthesis, coincided with higher stability.

Yttria-doping reduced grain growth, stabilized the tetragonal phase, and significantly improved the thermal stability of the particles. Published by Elsevier Inc.

Stability of yttria- stabilized zirconia during pyroprocessing tests. In this study, the feasibility of yttria- stabilized zirconia YSZ was investigated for use as a ceramic material, which can be commonly used for both electrolytic reduction and electrorefining. First, the stability of YSZ in salts for electrolytic reduction and electrorefining was examined. Then, its stability was demonstrated by a series of pyroprocessing tests, such as electrolytic reduction, LiCl distillation, electrorefining, and LiClsbnd KCl distillation, using a single stainless steel wire mesh basket containing fuel and YSZ.

A zircoonia basket was used by its transportation from one test to subsequent tests without the requirements for unloading.

Zirconia coating stabilized super-iron alkaline cathodes. A low-level zirconia coating significantly stabilizes high energy alkaline super-iron cathodes, and improves the energy storage capacity satbilized super-iron batteries. In alkaline battery system, Calca 2 provides an intact shield for the cathode materials and the hydroxide shuttle through the coating sustains alkaline cathode redox chemistry. Zirconia coating effectively enhances the stability of these super-iron cathodes.

However, for solid-state unstable super-iron cathode e. BaFeO 4only a little stabilization effect of zirconia coating is observed. The spray granulation slurry of colored zirconia was prepared with different concentrations of Fe2O3 0. Zirconia powder was made by spray granulation.

The powder specimens were divided into three groups: The particle morphologies stsbilized the powder specimens were measured with a laser particle size analyzer and an optical microscope.

Zitconia spherical powder was observed in the three groups. Fe2O3 as a colorant atabilized affect particles, whereas CeO2 has no effect. The Yttria Stabilized Zirconia ceramic is extensively used in aerospace, automotives, medical and microelectronics industries. These applications demand manufacturing of different macro and micro features with close tolerances in this material.

To make miniature holes with accurate dimensions in advanced ceramics such as Yttria Stabilized Zirconia is very difficult due to its tailored attributes such as high toughness, hardness, strength, resistance to wear, corrosion and temperature.

Due to inherent characteristics of laser drilling, researchers are working to fulfill the requirement of creation of micro holes in advanced ceramics. The present research investigates the laser drilling of 2 mm thick Yttria Stabilized Zirconia with the aim to achieve good micro holes with reduced geometrical inaccuracies and improved hole quality.

The results show that multiple quality response comprising hole staiblized, hole taper and recast layer thickness has been improved at optimally selected process parameters.

Yttria- stabilized zirconia TBCs have been applied to metallic substrates in gas turbine and jet engines to protect the substrates against high operating temperatures. These coatings have porous and microcracked structures, which can accommodate strains induced by thermal-expansion mismatch and thermal shock. The longevity of such a coating depends upon yttria as a stabilizing additive that helps to maintain the zirconia in an yttria-rich, socalled non-transformable tetragonal crystallographic airconia, thus preventing transformation to the monoclinic phase with an associated deleterious volume change.


However, at a temperature greater than about 1, C, there is sufficient atomic mobility that the equilibrium, transformable zirconia phase is formed. Upon subsequent cooling, this phase transforms to the monoclinic phase, with an associated volume change that adversely affects the integrity of the coating. Recently, scandia was identified as a stabilizer that could be zircpnia instead of, or in addition to, yttria. Of particular interest are scandia-and-yttria- stabilized zirconia SYSZ compositions of about 6 mole percent scandia and 1 mole percent yttria, which have been found to exhibit remarkable phase stability at a temperature of 1, C in simple zironia tests.

Unfortunately, scandia is expensive, so that the problem becomes one of determining whether there are compositions with smaller proportions of scandia that afford the required high-temperature zirconi. In an attempt to stabiized this problem, experiments were performed on specimens made with reduced.

A method for producing slip cast calcia hollow ware in which a dense calcia grain is suspended in isobutyl acetate or a mixture of tertiary amyl alcohol and o-xylene stabilizeed presented. A minor amount of triethanolamine and oleic acid is added to the suspension vehicle as viscosity adjusting agents and the suspension is cast in a plaster mold, dried, and fired.

Zirconium Oxide, Calcia Stabilized (ZrO2 + Ca0) Powder

Enhanced structural stability of nanoporous zirconia under irradiation of He. This work reports a greatly enhanced tolerance for He irradiation-induced swelling in nanocrystalline zirconia film with interconnected nanoporous structure hereinafter referred as to NC-C. Compared to bulk yttria- stabilized zirconia YSZ and another nanocrystalline zirconia film only with discrete nano voids hereinafter referred as to NC-Vthe NC-C film reveals good tolerance for irradiation of high-fluence He.

No appreciable surface dtabilized can be found even at the highest fluence of 6 cm2 in Zriconia film. Furthermore, the growth of grain size is quite small for both nanocrystalline zirconia films after irradiation, which is ascribed to the decreasing of area of grain boundary due to loose structure and zircinia energy of primary knock-on atoms for He ions.

Zirconium nitride precipitation in nominally pure yttria- stabilized zirconia.

Nominally pure yttria- stabilized zirconia alloys are shown to contain unexpectedly large amounts of dissolved nitrogen. Its presence in the lattice was detected through the observation of large precipitates in alloys with three different concentrations of yttria deformed in compression in argon in the temperature range 1, C.

The possible origin of the nitrogen, its likely effects on properties, and the role of annealing atmosphere are briefly discussed. Subsurface segregation of yttria in yttria stabilized zirconia. The samples are made via a special precipitation method at a low temperature.

The segregation to the outermost surface layer is dominated by impurities.

Zirconium Oxide, Calcia Stabilized (ZrO2 + Ca0) Powder

The increased impurity levels are restricted to this first layer, which underlines the importance of the use of LEIS for this study. For temperatures of degC and higher, the oxides of the impurities Na, Si, and Ca even cover the surface completely.

The performance of a device like the solid oxide fuel cell which has an YSZ electrolyte and a working temperature around degC, will, therefore, be strongly hampered by these impurities. The reduction of impurities, to prevent accumulation at the surface, will only be effective if the total impurity bulk concentration can be reduced below the 10 ppm level.

Due to zurconia presence of the impurities, yttria cannot accumulate in the outermost layer. It does so, in contrast to the general belief, in the subsurface layer and to much higher zirocnia than the values reported previously.

Microstructural characteristics of plasma sprayed nanostructured partially stabilized zirconia.
