This paper reports surface electrical properties of zirconia studied using work function measurements in the temperature range 297–1173 K during oxidation. It was found that surface preparation procedures, such as grinding and polishing, result in a change of its reactivity with oxygen. The effects produced by the preparation can be removed during thermal treatment at 1473 K.
