Yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) is a ceramic in which the crystal structure of zirconium dioxide becomes stable at room temperature by adding yttrium oxide to. These oxides are named because of the origin of "zirconia" (ZrO2) and "yttria" (Y2O3).

Some of the abbreviations commonly used are as follow:
        i) Partly stabilized zirconia ZrO2:
           i.a) PSZ - Partially Stabilized Zirconia
           i.b) TZP -Tetragonal Zirconia Polycrystal
           i.c) 4YSZ: with 4 mol-% Y2O3 partially Stabilized ZrO2, Yttria Stabilized Zirconia
        ii) Fully stabilized zirconias ZrO2:
           ii.a) FSZ - Fully Stabilized Zirconia
           ii.b) CSZ - Cubic Stabilized Zirconia
           ii.c) 3-12YSZ - with 3-12 mol-% Y2O3 Stabilized ZrO2
