An X-ray powder profile analysis in vanadium pentoxide powder milled in a high energy vibrational halt-mill for different lengths of time (0-250 h), is presented, The strain and size induced broadening of the Bragg reflection for two different crystallographic directions ([001] and [100]) was determined by Warren-Averbach analysis using a pattern-decomposition method assuming a Pseudo-Voigt function, The deformation process caused a decrease in the crystallite size and a saturation of crystallite size of similar to 10 nm was reached after severe milling. The initial stages of milling indicated a propensity of size-broadening due to Fracture DF the powder particles caused by repeated ball-to-powder impact whereas with increasing milling time microstrain broadening was predominant. WA analysis indicated significant plastic strain along with spatial confinement of the internal strain fields in the crystallite interfaces, Significant strain anisotropy was noticed in the different crystallographic directions. A near-isotropy in the crystallite size value was noticed for materials milled for 200 h and beyond, The column-length distribution function obtained from the size Fourier coefficients progressively narrowed down with the milling time.
