Summary

High transparency in the ultraviolet, visible, and infrared spectral regions can be achieved in polycryatalline MgAl2O4, spinel with high purify starting materials and advanced hot-pressing technology. Optical- and mechanical-property data at room and elevated temperatures will be reviewed. Shape and site limitations will be discussed.
