Nanocrystalline partially stabilised zirconia (PSZ) and yttria-fully stabilised zirconia (YSZ) powders were prepared by solution combustion process. Nanocrystalline nature of the powders was confirmed by XRD and TEM. Nanocomposite Ni/PSZ and Ni/YSZ films were electrodeposited from a suspension of nanoparticles in nickel sulfamate solution. The strengthening of the nanocomposite due to nanoparticle incorporation was characterised by nanohardness measurements. xA9; 2002 Acta Materialia Inc. Published by Elsevier Science Ltd.
