We report ultra–fast sintering of alumina and silica under scanning laser irradiation, and machine learning predictions of the processing-microstructure-property relationship during laser sintering. Using CO2 laser irradiation, we found that alumina and silica powders can be sintered close to full density within a few tens of seconds. The grain size – density master curve of laser–sintered alumina were different from those of the furnace–sintered alumina. The laser-sintered silica glass exhibits high optical transparency. We developed machine learning models to predict the following processing-microstructure-properties of laser-sintered ceramics: (1) the microstructure under arbitrary laser powers, (2) the microstructure at a laser spot during sintering, (3) the microstructure from a desired hardness and (4) the hardness from microstructure input.
