Paper Abstract

Linear thermal expansion coefficients (LTECs) of two kinds of partially stabilized zirconica (PSZ) gauge blocks were measured in the range from -10 to 60 degrees C with an optical heterodyne interferometric dilatometer. The dilatometer provides an order of 1 X 10-9 K-1 uncertainty and reproducibility in LTEC measurement. LTEC of (9.230 +/- 0.012) X 10-6 K-1 were obtained for four 2 percent Al2O3- PSZ gauge blocks, and (9.383 +/- 0.001) X K-1 for one 99.9 percent PSZ gauge block. These differences are discussed, together with the compositions and production lots.
