Abstract
The solgel process successfully prepared Nd2O3 / SiO2 nanocomposites. After drying in air at 85°C for three days, samples were heat treated, in air, at 750, 950, 1150 and 1250°C. Characterizations were made by, Infrared spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and scanning electron microscopy. Mechanisms of neodymium oxide nano clusters formation in the densified silica matrix with respect to thermal treatment are discussed. XRD profiles confirm the crystallinity of the nanoclusters. The size of the nanoclusters was found in the range 15-30nm.
