Thermal barrier coatings (TBC) are commonly used in modern gas turbines for aeronautic and energy production applications. The conventional methods to fabricate such TBCs are EB-PVD or plasma spray deposition. Recently, the spark plasma sintering (SPS) technique was used to prepare new multilayered coatings. In this study, complete thermal barrier systems were fabricated on single crystal Ni-based superalloy (AM1®) substrate in a one-step SPS process. The lifetime of TBC systems is highly dependent on its ability to form during service a dense, continuous, slow-growing alumina layer (TGO) between an underlying bond coating and a ceramic top coat. In the present paper, we show that such kind of layer (called proto-TGO in the following) can be in situ formed during the SPS fabrication of TBC systems. This proto-TGO is continuous, dense and its nature has been determined using TEM-EDS-SAD and Raman spectroscopy. This amorphous oxide layer in the as-fabricated samples transforms to α-Al2O3 during thermal treatment under laboratory air at 1100 °C. Oxidation kinetics during annealing are in good agreement with the formation of a protective α-Al2O3 layer
