We investigated the densification of undoped, nanocrystalline yttria (Y2O3) powder by spark plasma sintering (SPS) at sintering temperatures between 650°C and 1050°C at a heating rate of 10°C/min and an applied stress of 83 MPa. In spite of the low sinterability of the undoped Y2O3, a remarkable densification of the powder started at about 600°C, and a theoretical density of more than 97% was achieved at a sintering temperature of 850°C with a grain size of about 500 nm. The low temperature SPS is effective for fabricating dense Y2O3 polycrystals.
