The Combustion Synthesis of Nanoscale Ceria-Doped Calcia Solid Solution


Article Preview

A nanoscale ceria-doped calcia solid solution has been synthesized by controled self-combustion method. The difference in crystal structure of samples prepared from different fuels were identified by XRD. The change of the crystal structure of the ceria-doped calcia sintering at different temperature was also investigated. SEM indicates that a nanoscale and uniform particle with diameter less than 100 nm was achieved by this method.
