Highly Dispersive Mono-sized Nanoparticles of Y2O3-stabilized ZrO2
Uniformly sized nanoparticles 3-5nm in diameter of Y2O3-stabilized ZrO2 (YSZ) were fabricated by a water-toluene twophase solvothermal method. The nanoparticles that were covered with oleic acid were highly dispersed in organic media. The size and doping concentration were tuned by adjusting the preparation conditions. The fabrication of YSZ thin films was achieved through hexagonal arrangement by evaporation-induced selfassembly of highly dispersive mono-sized nanoparticles.
