We report the synthesis of single-phased Nd/Si-doped yttrium aluminum garnet powder via a solvothermal method by using ethanol as the solvent. The obtained powder exhibits a spherical shape, no agglomeration, and an average particle size of similar to 300 nm, suitable for conventional powder processing. The effect of heat treatment on the lattice parameter and optical properties of the powder is also studied. The results are discussed in terms of Nd/Si solubility.
