Nanocrystalline Zinc Oxide Powder for X-ray Diffraction Metrology
David R. Black, Joseph J. Ritter, John E. Bonevich, Albert Henins, James P. Cline
Nano scale zinc oxide powder has been produced using a precise thermal decomposition process from a zinc oxalate precursor powder. The size of the crystallites is determined by the specifics of the thermal processing which were chosen to yield crystallites in two size ranges, one with a distribution centered at approximately 15 nm and another centered at 70 nm. The resulting material is composed of essentially strain-free crystallites that are aggregated to a certain extent, but can nonetheless be examined with a TEM to augment X-ray diffraction analyses. This material will be used for a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Standard Reference Material (SRM) 1979, a crystallite size standard.
