Y2O3 and Al2O3 form three distinct phases of which YAG of empirical formula Y3Al5O12 is the most important as an industrial material. There are many different methods of synthesizing the material and extensive literature is available in the form of published documents such as paper and patents related to this. In the present article, an alternative is made to summarize different methods of synthesis of the material YAG as described in such documents. Relevant discussion is also included with respect to crystal structure of different phases and phase diagram in Y2O3-Al2O3 system.
