Fabrication and Characterization of YAG Nanopowders by Co-Precipitation under Ultrasonic Radiation


Article Preview

A carbonate precursor with high sintering activity was prepared by co-precipitation method under ultrasonic radiation. This precursor precipitant completely transformed to pure YAG phase after being calcined at 900 °C for 4 h. The properties of YAG nanopowders obtained under different synthetic process were studied by XRD, TG-DSC, FT-IR and SEM. The results show that the ultrasonic radiation can fine the precursor and reduce its agglomeration. YAG nanopowders with an average particle size of about 60 nm were obtained and particles were sphere-shaped with good dispersity.
