Abstract
Three-dimensional tomography was performed on hydrothermal degraded zirconia by sequential focussed ion beam (FIB) sectioning and field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) observation. By means of image analysis the distribution of microcracks produced under the surface was reconstructed and characterized. Results show a microcrack network preferentially oriented parallel to the surface, and a gradient in microcrack density from the surface, which is coherent with other measurements ...
