Microwave driven hydrothermal synthesis and hydrothermal synthesis were used to obtain ZrO2 nanopowders. Their production with varying phase composition, the characterisation and selected optical properties concerning their potential use as luminescence oxygen sensors are reported. It was found that the powders obtained by the microwave driven hydrothermal method and annealed at 750 0C in air show experiment repeatability within an accuracy of 6 %.
