This study deals with the deposition of coating materials that can be difficult to process by plasma spraying, including lanthanum and gadolinium zirconate, two pyrochlores of interest for thermal barrier applications, and lanthanum strontium cobalt ferrite (LSCF), a perovskite of interest for gas separation membranes. In addition to conventional atmospheric plasma spraying (APS), the feedstock powders were applied by suspension plasma spraying (SPS) and plasma spray-physical vapor deposition (PS-PVD). The spraying processes are described in detail along with the characteristics of the powders and coatings and the effects of various spray parameters on splat behavior and coating composition and structure.
