Using transmission electron microscopy and diffraction method studies of zirconium dioxide powders prepared by plasma-chemical deposition of thin films were carried out. In films having the average crystalline size less than 6-8 nm high contact elastic stresses resulting in continuous change of the material lattice parameter near crystalline boundaries appear. Due to these stresses relaxation under γ-irradiation a number of metastable states of zirconium dioxide crystalline lattice is formed.
