Title: Structural and magnetic studies of nanocrystalline Y{sub 2}Ir{sub 2}O{sub 7}

In this paper, we discuss synthesis of Y{sub 2}Ir{sub 2}O{sub 7} nanoparticles via chemical solution process. Structural analysis shows single cubic phase with Fd-3m space group symmetry. The particle size and distribution were studied by Transmission Electron Microscopy experiments. The average particle size turns out to be 50nm, which is in good agreement with the XRD results. Magnetic characterization shows no evidence of long range ordering even in presence of strong correlations.
