Nano rare earth materials have attracted great interest recently due to their unique properties and extensive applications. Among the methods for nano rare earth materials synthesis, plasma spraying is an efficient technique with great potential. However, problems such as clogging and inhomogeneous heating need to be addressed. The present study set out to improve the plasma spraying technique through experiments and modeling work.
