Features of ZrO2–Y2O3 System Nanopowders with a Different Y2O3 Content

Combination light scattering spectroscopy and infrared spectroscopy are used to study ZrO2 powder stabilized with 2, 3, 5, and 7 mol.% Y2O3. Changes in spectra are demonstrated connected with an increase in amount ofstabilizing addition. Differential thermal analysis establishes that variation of Y2O3 content affects the position of peaks for thermal and thermogravimetric effects during oxide calcination.
