Nanocomposites (nanocrystals) of KY(WO) and KY(WO)+1% mol Yb have been synthesized using a Complex Sol-Gel Process (CSGP). The chemical treatment with concentrated nitric acid and hydrogen peroxide was used to decrease the decarbonisation temperature.
The expected monoclinic phase C2/c of the KYW of the nanocomposite powder has been confirmed using XDR technique. From the X-ray diffraction measurements, the unit cell parameters and the size of a nanoparticles have been determined. Electron spin resonance studies in the X band have been performed on KYW and KYW:Yb nanocrystals.
The sintered samples were made with using the high pressure technique in the temperature up to 600oC. The chemical analysis, the X-ray diffraction measurements and ESR investigations were made for sintered samples too.
