Structural stages observed during yttria-stabilized zirconia formation. (a) Structural model of the zirconia double-chain existing in the precursor solution part of a (b) polymeric chain. (c) Amorphous structure formed after precipitation containing distinct rigid units (yellow). (d) Mature cubic crystalline structure of YSZ. Oxygen: red; zirconium: green and yellow; nitrogen: blue. Yttrium is here structurally equivalent to zirconium.
