The results of research carried out in the Institute of High Pressure Physics in collaboration with partners within COST action D30 and D32 is presented. The main results are highlighted:

microwave driven hydrothermal synthesis is well suited for synthesis of doped nanopowders

  • doping on nanopowders is an effective tool to reach high doping levels
  • it seems that hydrothermal synthesis permits to reach high doping levels
  • new phenomena have been discovered as far as optical properties of the nanopowders.
  • application of high pressure permitted to obtain dense transparent nanoceramics of YAG
  • new methods of nanopowders characterization have been developed:
  • measurements of density of nanopowders
  • measurement of grain size distribution with the use of fine analysis of x-ray diffraction profiles and determination of lattice constants of nanopowders
