YSZ(Yttria-stabilized zirconia)-Crystals and Substrates

YSZ (Yttria-stabilized zirconia) single crystal substrate is one of the earliest materials which applied in high-temperature superconducting films. With high hardness, high firmness, high tenacity, less abrasiveness and good chemical erode resistant property, Zirconium Oxide has already been widely various fields, such as ceramicsrefractoriesmachineryelectronicsopticsspace and aeronautics industrybiology and chemistry, etc. The common used Zirconia needs to be doped with Yttrium as a stabilizer. And the usual concentration of it is 13 mol%. YSZ has good mechanical stability and chemical stability with lower cost.
