Very fine PLZT powders with particle size of approx. 200 nm were synthesized by a nanocomposite method from relatively inexpensive precursors. Pellets made from these powders were sintered to 96% of theoretical density at 1250°C for 4 hrs. The crystallization, densification and microstructure were studied for nanocomposite PLZT in comparison with sintered compacts made from monophasic processing of the same composition.
