The optical properties of transparent spinel sintered by spark plasma sintering have been investigated for incident electromagnetic radiations with wavelengths in the range 0.2-2 mu m. It is shown that residual porosities and second-phase graphite particles have a strong influence on the in-line transmittance. Because of the graphite particles, the in-line transmittance measured does not approach that of monocrystalline spinel for wavelengths above 1 mu m.
