Abstract

Grain growth and densification is described during pressureless sintering of nanocrystalline tetragonal zirconia compacts, doped with various amounts of yttria and/or ceria. All powders have a crystalline size of 8 nm and show an identical aggregate and agglomerate structure. During non-isothermal sintering up to 1050°C no significant difference in grain growth and densification is observed. Isothermal sintering for 6 hours at 1050°C of yttria doped tetragonal zirconia results in a dense ceramic with a grain size of 60 nm. At temperatures ≥ 1050°C ceria doped zirconia shows a stronger grain growth and a lower densification rate if compared with yttria doped zirconia. The effect of dopant on grain growth at higher temperatures is explained in terms of a difference in segregation behaviour of the solute atoms and consequently a difference in grain boundary migration due to 'drag control'.
