Transparent ceramics are widely considered in military applications such as transparent armor, electrooptical window and domes, and high power solid-state laser hosting components. Advanced fabrication technologies of polycrystalline ceramics have enabled us to make transparent ceramics with outstanding thermal, mechanical and optical properties which were not possible before. The existing properties of the ceramics, however, need to be improved for the applications of future military systems. Here, we reviewed the studies on the characteristics and the fabrication methods of these transparent ceramics.
Key Words: Transparent ceramics, Military application, Characteristics, Fabrication technologies
