摘要：With the improvement of the laser technology, better materials used as substance are in urged. Fabrication of the ones with larger scale and higher concentration of dopant ions became an important field. The paper reviewed the recent investigation of Nd:YAG transparent ceramics in the matter of the history, synthesis of the powders, molding, and the sintering. Some fundamental scientific problems have been put forwards.
