Abstract

This section of this review discusses the main features of methods for producing a new laser material--a ceramic for the development of powerful next-generation solid-state lasers. A laser ceramic with a perfect crystalline structure and containing no impurities is virtually identical to microcrystals of the same composition in its spectral and laser characteristics. The main methods of synthesizing precursors for a laser ceramic and examples of the technological implementation of these methods are considered.
