In this study, gas- and water-stabilized plasma torches were used to spray cesium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Ce:YAG) on different substrate materials and in large-area free-standing layers. The coatings were evaluated based on microstructure, crystallinity, and thermal stability, and tests were performed to measure porosity, hardness, phase composition, band-gap energy, and the presence of defects. Some coatings were also heat treated to determine how it changes their spectral response. The results of the examinations and tests are presented in the paper.
