Research activities supported by a nine-month Short Term Innovative Research STIR grant from the Army Research Office, Materials Science Division, Synthesis and Processing of Materials Program are disclosed herein, comprising synthesis of selected mixed oxide and non-oxide ceramic solid solution powders via conventional solid state techniques gas-solid reaction processing to produce ceramic nanocomposite particles and, on a limited basis, bulk consolidation via spark plasma sintering. Microstructural characterization of products was conducted viaelectron microscopy and x-ray diffraction.
