Abstract:
The phase stability of zirconia (ZrO2) under external perturbation draws the attention of researchers, as it governs the practical use of this material in technological applications. In this article, the phase transition in zinc oxide (ZnO) doped ZrO2 is addressed by exploiting complementary methodologies, X-ray diffraction, and Raman spectroscopic measurements. We have observed a pressure-induced partial phase transformation in the doped ZrO2 system for a compacting pressure of less than 1 GPa. It is noteworthy that the level of compacting pressure used in this study is much lower than the range of pressure, reported in the literature, for observing phase transition in pure and doped ZrO2 using other high-pressure experiments. To understand the underlying dynamics of low pressure-induced phase transformation, we carried out density functional theory calculations for the doped supercell. We have discussed the local bonding environment around the dopant metal ion (Zn2+ in the present case), which, we believe, leads to the phase evolution in a real system.

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
