Nd-doped and Nd/Si-codoped yttrium aluminum garnet powders were synthesized via a solvothermal method using ethanol as the solvent. The photoluminescence spectra of the powders revealed that the intensity of the emission increased with Nd-doping concentration initially and then decreased with further increase in Nd concentration. The powder containing 3.5 atm% Nd exhibited the highest light emission intensity. The fluorescence lifetime of the yttrium aluminum garnet powders was also measured as a function of Nd-doping concentration. The results were fitted with an empirical equation.
