The Solution Precursor Plasma Spray Process (SPPS) is a highly flexible process that can deposit single- or multi-phase oxide coatings for functional applications. The coating microstructure is on the nanoscale and is compositionally homogeneous. In this presentation, the SPPS process and its utility to fabricate multi-functional materials will be described. Comparisons will be made to alternate plasma spray processing methods, including those using powder and suspensions. The applications include: (a) thermal barrier coatings with a unique strain-tolerant microstructure, (b) coatings with in-situ sensors on the atomic scale, and (c) two-phase transparent ceramics that meet stringent optical and elevated temperature mechanical properties.
