DSC (differential scanning calorimeter) measurements were performed to investigate the tetragonal‐monoclinic (t‐m) transition enthalpy of the compositionally homogeneous ZrO2‐X mol% CeO2 solid solution of X= 0, 4, 8, and 12. The transition enthalpy decreases linearly with an increase of CeO2 content. The m → t transition enthalpy on heating agreed well with the inverse t → m one obtained during cooling. With increasing X, the DSC peak broadens and the transition temperature distribution of each sample increases, while the thermal hysteresis is almost independent of X.
