Powders of nanosized particles of individual and mixed lanthanum and lutetium orthophosphates are synthesized. The grain growth process is studied in the temperature range of 200–1100°C. Temperature and concentration regions of existence of the solid solutions based on hexagonal and monoclinic forms of LaPO4 as well as on tetragonal LuPO4 are determined.
