Transparent La2Zr2O7 with cubic pyrochlore structure was first fabricated by reactive spark plasma sintering using commercially available La2O3 and ZrO2 powders. Single phase of pyrochlore La2Zr2O7 was obtained at a sintering temperature of 1673 K and sintering pressure at 100 MPa for 2.7 ks. The La2Zr2O7 sintered body had a uniform grain size of 1.5 μm and exhibited 68% transmittance in the wavelength range of 4-6 μm.
