Microstructural Tailoring of YAG and YAG-Containing Nanoceramics through Advanced Synthesis Routes
Wet-chemical syntheses have been applied to the production of ceramic powders, with the aim of tailoring compositional and micro/nanostructural features, as an imperative requirement toward the elaboration of ceramic components with improved functional or even structural properties. Three syntheses are here presented and discussed, respectively concerning a purephased, nanostructured YAG powder, a biphasic Al2O3-YAG composite and three-phased Al2O3- YAG-ZrO2 material. In particular, this paper is aimed to illustrate the path followed from the set-up of the easier synthesis of the mono-phased system to the definition of the advanced procedures for the production of more and more complex compositions.
