Fabrication of High Transparent YAG Ceramics by Vacuum Sintering at Low Temperature
Yttrium aluminum garnet (YAG) nanopowders were synthesized by n-amyl co-precipitation method. Transparent YAG ceramics were achieved by sintering the green body at 1800°C and then 1600°C for ten hours with TEOS as sintering additive. The transmittance of the sample was 75% at visible wavelength of 800nm.
