Abstract: The constrained sintering behavior of yttria stabilized zirconia coatings containing 1 wt. % alumina produced using electrophoretic deposition has been studied. Coatings have been characterized by scanning electron microscopy, micro-hardness and fluorescence spectroscopy after sintering in air at 1100°C and 1200°C. These coatings were compared with those that additionally contained 1 wt. % soda-lime glass. Micro-hardness and fluorescence spectroscopy are shown to accurately monitor the density of the coatings.…
