Abstract : The Fourth International Conference on the Science and Technology of Zirconia (ZrO2 IV) was held at Anaheim, California in November, 1989. One hundred twenty (120) papers were presented on topics covering fuel cells, phase transformation, processing, sensors, defects, fracture, fatigue, creep, and superplasticity. Trends in zirconia research are summarized. It is suggested that zirconia has begun to attain the status of 'classical' ceramics, like Al2O3 and UO2, and will continue to offer current and future scientific research opportunities. Keywords: Zirconia; Fuel cell; Phase transformation; Sensors; Processing; Toughening; Fracture; Fatigue; Superplasticity; Microstructure; Conferences; Symposia.
