Abstract

Crystals of single-phased metastable tetragonal zirconia (MTZ) were prepared from skullmelting at the composition ZrO2-3 mol % M2O3 (M = Y, Yb or Gd). The fracture of the tetragonal crystals occurred differently than for the cubic stabilized zirconia ones. The toughness was much higher for the tetragonal specimens and the cleavage planes were not the same as for the fluorite crystals. The results were interpreted by considering the domain microstructure induced by the cubic → tetragonal phase transformation undergone by the crystals.
