Abstract
Nanocerox produces oxide nanopowders via flame spray pyrolysis that have proven effective in the processing of a host of high quality optical ceramic materials. In order to produce LWIR windows to compete with ZnS, however, oxide materials are not suitable. Nanocerox has therefore developed aqueous synthesis techniques for the production of zinc sulfide nanopowders. The proprietary processing technique allows control of primary particle size, high purity, low levels of agglomeration, and cost effective synthesis. Crystallinity, particle size, and purity of the powders will be presented. Characterization of parts fabricated from these powders via sinter/HIP processing will also be discussed, including optical performance and microstructural characterization.
