Residual stress distribution in an EB-PVD 4 mol% Y2O3-ZrO2 thermal barrier coating (TBC) layer coated on a superalloy substrate has been measured by micro-Raman spectroscopy. Piezo-spectroscopic coefficient was independently calibrated on a freestanding TBC layer. The coefficient for uniaxial stress is Πuni = 5.43 cm- 1GPa- 1. The stress measurement through the TBC thickness shows compressive stress distribution from small to an almost large constant value. Such a distribution agrees with theoretical consideration since the small stress correctly reflects the free edge effect and the large constant stress is closely related to TBC bulk stresses.
