Paper Abstract

We have synthesized nanophase yttria via gas-phase condensation with CO2-laser heating. Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) shows particles of about 3 - 8 nm in diameter. X-ray diffraction (XRD) indicates a diffracting domain size L440 of 2 - 5 nm, and a lattice constant a0440 ranging from 10.60 Å to 10.70 Å. Vacuum sintering, two-stage sintering, and combined vacuum/two-stage sintering are used to consolidate the Y2O3 nanoparticles into ceramics.
