This section of the review discusses the main features of the construction of laser ceramic and how they affect the spectroscopic and lasing properties of the new material. The technology for obtaining a laser ceramic affects the processes that cause the ions of the rare-earth elements to be segregated and, as a consequence, affects their spectroscopic properties.
