Achem Calahorra, J., Esparza Ponce, H., Zambrano Robledo, P., Almeraya Calderón, F. et al., "Electrochemical Noise Behavior of YSZ Coatings Applied by Magnetron Sputtering on Aircraft Alloys," SAE Technical Paper 2015-01-2605, 2015, doi:10.4271/2015-01-2605.
Thin films deposited by magnetron sputtering are review in terms of their potential and present uses in the aircraft industry. The aircraft alloys substrates were Ti-6Al-4V and Incoloy 800HT, using a target of yttrium stabilized zirconia (YSZ) with nominal composition of 8% Y2O3 (wt%) and the remainder of ZrO2. The chemical composition of the films was determined by X-ray energy dispersion (EDS). The electrochemical noise behavior show that the coatings decreased propagation of pitting, leading to a state of passivation or uniform corrosion, and also possess superior corrosion resistance over the individually substrates.
