Summary

Results are presented for initial characterization of physical properties, microstructure, and phase structure of partially stabilized HfO2 single crystals. These results, for crystals prepared by skull melting, are compared with those for ZrO2 single crystals of similar composition and for fully stabilized ZrO2 and HfO2 single crystals. The observed microstructures and mechanical properties suggest that partially stablized HfO2 crystals may be useful high temperature structural ceramics.
