Preparation of YAG Nanoparticles and their Characteristics
The nanosized yttrium aluminium garnet powders doped with rare earth oxides are prepared by combustion synthesis using several organic fuel. Dense materials are manufactured by conventional sintering and spark plasma sintering (SPS). The combustion synthesis provides preparation of pure crystalline YAG nanopowders at ratio Y/Al = 3/5 after additional calcination at 1000 oC. The relative density of the SPS sintered samples at 1500 oC for 2 min is in the range of 95.4–98.5% depending on dispersity of powders.
