Paper Abstract

Principles that enable to synthesize anisotropic laser ceramics have been established. Anisotropic laser ceramics contain micro domains made of anisotropic crystals, and we have invented the novel alignment technology of micro domain structure in laser ceramics assisted by rare-earth trivalent. Our novel process is essentially superior to the traditional electromagnetic processing from the viewpoint of mass production. We discussed the significance of anisotropic laser ceramics, and we also show the result of evaluations to our orientation controlled RE:FAP ceramics.
