Properties of grain boundaries such as grain boundary energy, mobility and diffusion are reported to depend strongly on their crystallography. While studies on ceramic bicrystals with low sigma misorientations have shown highly ordered structures and low energies, studies on dense polycrystalline ceramics often show the significance of grain boundary planes. In the present study, grain boundary plane distributions were studied for yttria-stabilised cubic zirconia with varying grain sizes using Electron Back Scattered Diffraction technique combined with a stereological approach. Despite nearly isotropic grain boundary plane distributions, a highly anisotropic grain boundary character distribution is observed for specific misorientations. Certain low-energy symmetric tilts such as sigma 3 and sigma 11 are found to occur with high frequencies across the grain size range studied, leading to an inverse correlation between GB energy and frequency of occurrence, consistent with other ceramics studied in literature.
