Laser synthesis of ultradisperse powders of aluminum oxide
We have studied laser synthesis and the structure and properties of ultradisperse aluminum oxide powders. We show that the laser radiation intensity affects the phase composition. We find that the following conditions are optimal for production of these powders: power 500 W, pressure 0.1 atm (1–10 kPa), helium as the synthesis atmosphere.
