Colloidal processing was applied to obtain dense and homogenous zirconia-dispersed alumina and alumina-dispersed zirconia nanocomposites. Excellent superplastic properties were achieved. The effects of the microstructure such as grain size, second-phase size, and cavity density on the superplastic properties were discussed and compared with conventionally prepared samples.
