Article Preview

In this present work, two buffer layers (La2Zr2O7 and CeO2) were deposited by a non-contact computer-controlled ink-jet coating technique with sol-gel precursors on highly textured Ni-5%W Rolling Assisted Biaxially Textured substrates (RABiTS). Lanthanum acetate and cerium acetylacetonate were used as precursors for the LZO and CeO2 sol respectively. After a high temperature heat treatment (heating at 900°C for LZO and at 1100°C for CeO2) under reducing atmosphere, epitaxial textured buffer layers were obtained. XRD and pole figures were used to analyse the texture of the films, the microstructure was analysed by SEM.
