The porous ZrO2 ceramics was prepared by spark plasma sintering (SPS) at 520 °C. A dense closed micro-cellular ceramic structure was fabricated with micron Al90Mn9Ce1 alloy powders clading by 10 wt% ZrO2 nano-powder. SEM image showed that the thickness of ceramic cell wall was 1.0 - 2.0 μm. After deep corrosion with 10% HCl, an integrity nanocrystalline ZrO2 porous sample was obtained. Based on the experimental results, the transient spark plasma sintering mechanism of micron-nano mixing powder was also studied.
