Pure phase Y3Fe5O12 (YIG) ceramics was successfully produced by tape-casting forming process and one-step solid-state reaction method. With the sintering temperature above 1100 ºC, the pure phase YIG ceramics was synthesized with no YIP or Fe2O3 phase in XRD patterns. YIG ceramic sintering at 1400 ºC for 10 h showed a clear grain structure with an obvious grain boundary, and no pores were observed in the SEM images. YIG ceramics in this paper has a high relative density which was 99.8% and the saturation magnetization was 28.2 emu/g at room temperature. The hysteresis loss at temperatures of 230-360 K was smaller than 10 mJ/kg. The tan Se was nearly zero at 6~7 GHz and 11~12 GHz, showing that it can be used as a good material for microwave applications. In addition, the low values of tan and tan indicates that it may have a good electromagnetic wave absorption ability.
