Due to their small particle size, light scattering in nanomaterials with particle sizes below ca. 40nm is very small. Therefore, new materials for optoceramics based on nanosized particles of zirconia, alumina-coated zirconia, alumina, and alumina doped with some additives are very promising. These materials were synthesized using the Karlsruhe Microwave Plasma Process [1,2]. The focus of this work is the synthesis and the characterization with respect to particle size and phase composition.
