Phase transitions and CTE of 10mol%Sc2 O3 -1mol%CeO2 -ZrO2 ceramics sintered from two commercial powders produced by Praxair Surface Technologies, USA and DKKK, Japan are studied. Morphology of powders and grain structure of ceramics were studied by SEM and AFM. Ceramics produced from Praxair powder exist in cubic phase while DKKK-based ceramics exhibit slow phase transformation from cubic to rhombohedral (β) phase at temperatures 350–400°C. c-β Phase transition temperature is 440°C obtained by high temperature x-ray diffractometry (HTXRD) and differential scanning calorimetry. Coefficients of thermal expansion of cubic and β-phases were calculated from temperature dependence of lattice parameters obtained by HTXRD in the temperature range of 25–800°C. These results can be further used for the optimal design of SOFC layered structures as well as for determination of their reliability and durability under operational conditions.
