The paper deals with microplastic deformation and macroscopic residual stresses in silicon nitride ceramics due to contact loading and their effect on the near-surface strength. Depth-resolving X-ray residual stress measurements on shot peened samples detect high microplastic deformation and macroscopic compressive residual stresses up to 1.3 Gpa at the surface decreasing to zero within 10 pm. These high compressive stresses enhance the load bearing capacity in the ball-on plate test up to 50 % compared to polished samples.
