The fine grains of Al2O3-Cr2O3/Cr-carbide nanocomposites were prepared by employing recently developed spark plasma sintering (SPS) technique. The initial materials were fabricated by a metal organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) process, in which Cr(CO)6 was used as a precursor and Al2O3 powders as matrix in a spouted chamber. The basic mechanical properties like hardness, fracture strength and toughness, and the nanoindentation characterization of nanocomposites such as Elastics modulus (E), elastic work (We) and plastic work (Wp) were analyzed. The microstructure of dislocation, transgranular and step-wise fracture surface were observed in the nanocomposites. The nanocomposites show fracture toughness of (4.8MPam1/2) and facture strength (780MPa), which is higher than monolithic alumina. The strengthening mechanism from the secondary phase and solid solution are also discussed in the present work. Nanoindentation characterization further illustrates the strengthening of nanocomposites.
