In this research, the nanopowders of lanthanum and neodymium co-doped yttria were synthesized by sol-gel combustion method. Citric acid and glycine were used as the gel maker and fuel respectively. The effect of molar ratio of citric acid to glycine on the grain size and morphology was evaluated. The optimized products were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), field-emission scanning electron microscope (FESEM), transmission electron microscope (TEM), UV–visible (UV–Vis), thermal gravimetric-differential thermal analysis (TG/DTA), and Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FTIR). The optimized products which are synthesized with a molar ratio citric acid to glycine 1.06:1.06 have an average grain size of 30-40nm with spherical morphology, and without agglomeration. Also, their band gap is 3.29eV.
