Transparent YAG ceramics have been fabricated by a lithography-based additive manufacturing method. Ceramic green bodies were printed using a photo-curable slurry which possessed sufficient flow properties to facilitate high-resolution and stable printing behavior. The printed and cured ceramics could be stable for a few months. After a slow de-binding process, the green body could be sintered to transparency by vacuum sintering only. Truly complex shaped objects are demonstrated to show the potential of lithography-based additive manufacturing in transparent ceramics processing.
