Abstract: Nd:YAG nanopowder was prepared by urea co-precipitation method. XRD, TG-DTA, SEM and spectra analysis were utilized to study the properties of the powder. Results indicated that fine Nd:YAG nanopowder can be acquired at 1000°C for 10h. The fluorescence spectra shown that the strongest peak was located at 1061nm, corresponding to the 4F3/24I11/2 energy level transition of Nd3+ ion.
