[en] Nuclear vitrification components used in melter pot made of Ni-base superalloys degrade prematurely due to alloy-waste glass interaction and the formation of secondary precipitates. Deposition of cubic yttria stabilized zirconia (c-YSZ) coating has been recommended as a diffusion barrier material to delay or reduce the failure of the alloy and to enable an extended life. In the present work, c-YSZ films have been deposited on Inconel-690 substrate by electron beam evaporation technique at various substrate temperatures from 673 K to 973 K. The residual stress in the film surface and at the film/substrate interface was measured using grazing incidence x-ray diffraction (GIXRD) with various incidence angles. It was observed that the residual stress at the film/substrate interface region changes from tensile to compressive when the substrate temperature was increased from 673 K to 973 K during deposition. Furthermore, the thermal expansion coefficient (TEC) of Inconel-690 substrate and YSZ film coated Inconel-690 substrate were determined by high temperature (HTXRD) measurement in the temperature range of 298–1273 K with 100 K interval. The linear TECs of Inconel-690 and YSZ coated Inconel-690 at 1273 K were found to be 1.53 × 10−5 K−1 and 6.04 × 10−6 K−1, respectively. - Highlights: • Deposition of cubic YSZ films on Inconel-690 by EBPVD technique. • HTXRD studies of Inconel-690 and YSZ film. • Thermal expansion coefficient of Inconel-690 was 60% higher than YSZ film. • Analysis of residual stress distribution as a function of x-ray penetration depth. • Tensile stress at film surface and compressive stress at film/substrate interface.
