Thermal barrier coating (TBC) ceramic top-coats made from Y2O3-stabilized ZrO2 (YSZ) have been used successfully in gas-turbine engine applications for more than 30 years. YSZ derives its favorable performance from a combination of properties that include low thermal conductivity, high thermal expansion coefficient, and phase stability to relatively high temperatures. With advanced engine requirements of improved performance and increased durability, a new generation of thermal barrier coatings is needed that will provide greater insulation (lower thermal conductivity) and permit higher operating temperatures.
