A nonlinear calibration curve for volume fraction vs integrated intensity ratio was obtained for the monoclinic‐tetragonal ZrO2 system by using X‐ray powder pattern‐fitting and pattern‐decomposition techniques. The empirical equation agrees well with the theoretical one. By using this equation, the deviation from linearity (6.8% maximum) resulting from the intensity difference of corresponding reflections of the two phases can be estimated quite accurately.
