This paper presents the results of an experimental investigation on the optical properties of the TiO2 and TixCyOz nanopowders, produced by the pulsed plasma chemical method. Pulsed plasma chemical synthesis is realized on the laboratory stand, including a plasma chemical reactor (6 l) and TEA-500 electron accelerator. The parameters of the electron beam are as follows: 400–450 keV electron energy, 60 ns half-amplitude pulse duration, up to 200 J pulse energy, and 5 cm beam diameter. In TiO2 sample, obtained using the pulsed plasma chemical method, the particles can be divided into two groups: 100–500 nm large spherical particles and tiny complex particles (sized less than 100 nm). For TixCyOz sample, the morphology of the particles is mainly presented with irregular fragment shape. The average size of the particles is ranged from 200 to 300 nm. The band gap for all synthesized samples is within 2.94–3.35 eV.
