The present work focuses on the following crystalline phases at room temperature and below: the rhombohedral FE N phase (R3c, SG 161, Z = 6), the monoclinic AFE P phase (Pm, SG 6, Z = 8), and the orthorhombic AFE P phase (Pbcm, SG 57, Z = 8).

Zirconium crystals undergo crystallographic changes ranging from the melting temperature (4919 [degrees]F) to room temperature; these changes are: monoclinic phase (room temperature-2138[degrees]F), tetragonal phase (2138-4298[degrees]F), and cubic phase (over 4298[degrees]F).
The remarkable mechanical properties of zirconia, already exploited in several medical and engineering applications, are mainly due to the tetragonal to monoclinic (tm) phase transformation.
