Abstract : Studies are underway to gain a better understanding of the electrical properties of ZrO2 and other refractory materials. Because the bonding in metal oxides is partially ionic, there always will be an ionic component of the total measured conductivity. The relative contribution of the ionic component must be measured before a detailed conduction mechanism can be evolved. The present phase of the work is concerned with electrical processes in pure, stabilized, and oxygen deficient zirconia. (Author)
