Paper Abstract

The nanostuctured YSZ (Yttria Stabilized Zirconia) membranes on Si(110) substrates are successfully prepared by sol-gel technology derived from inorganic salts ZrOCl2•8H2O, H2C2O4•2H2O and Y(NO3)3•6H2O. By means of controlling the supersaturation and diffusion velocity in solution when the zirconyl oxalate xerogels are repeptized, spherical colloidal paricles with different distributions are obtained. we propose that the peptization of xerogels can be considered as a process of nucleation and growth of colloidal particles. The membranes are preparated by spinning the modified sols on Si(110) substrates. After calcining at 800°C for 1 hour, the membranes are crack-free and mirrorlike. The membranes consist of monodisperse fine spherical crystallines in the range of 20~220nm in diameter, which microstructures are controlled by changing the size and distribution of colloidal particles in sols.
