Zirconium dioxide (ZrO2), sometimes known as zirconia (not to be confused with zircon), is a white crystalline oxide of zirconium. Its most naturally occurring form, with a monoclinic crystalline structure, is the mineral baddeleyite. A dopant stabilized cubic structured zirconia, cubic zirconia, is synthesized in various colors for use as a gemstone and a diamond simulant.
The very low thermal conductivity of the cubic phase of zirconia also has led to its use as a thermal barrier coating, or TBC, in jet and diesel engines to allow operation at higher temperatures. Thermodynamically, the higher the operating temperature of an engine, the greater the possible efficiency. Another low thermal conductivity use is ceramic fiber insulation for crystal growth furnaces, fuel cell stack insulation, and infrared heating systems.
Zirconia can be used as a photocatalyst since its high bandgap (~ 5 eV) allows the generation of high energy electrons and holes. Some studies demonstrated the activity of doped zirconia (in order to increase visible light absorption) in degrading organic compounds and reducing Cr(VI) from wastewaters.
Zirconia is also a potential high-k dielectric material with potential applications as an insulator in transistors.
Zirconia is also employed in the deposition of optical coatings; it is a high-index material usable from the near-UV to the mid-IR, due to its low absorption in this spectral region. In such applications, it is typically deposited by PVD.
