YAG powder was prepared by co-precipitation method, and Al and Y elements were uniformly distributed in powder. After calcination at 900°C for 2 h, pure YAG phases can be obtained. The powder has good sintering ability, and dense bodies could be obtained by hot-pressing at 1500°C for 1 h. Its bending strength and fracture toughness are 245 MPa and 2.0 Mpa·m1/2, respectively. Through SEM observation, the grain size is about 3-6 μm. Spark plasma sintering was also employed to produce sintering body, 93% relative density could be obtained at 1400°C for 5 min. Its bending strength is 348 MPa, and fracture toughness is 2.1 MPa·m1/2. Its grain size is about 1-2 μm.
