Figure 2

SEM micrographs of (a) nanocrystalline HA powders prepared by sol–gel (after route1 ), (b) polished cross-section of HA water vapor-assisted sintered compact (950°C for 1 h) showing a dense and uniform microstructure, (c) polished cross-section of HA/YSZ water vapor-assisted sintered compacts (950°C for 1 h), showing a tailored microstructure. The inset shows the EDX spectra acquired from the individual zirconia grains.
