An opportunity of using solar energy to develop a multicomponent ceramic material synthesis technology using melts has been demonstrated. Optical and energy parameters of the 1 MW Large solar furnace for synthesizing aluminum titanate-based materials are presented along with their phase and grain size compositions depending on the melt cooling rate. A possibility of obtaining a two-phase material containing the tialite phase and spinel is shown. A positive effect of the spinel phase on the properties of ceramics made from the material synthesized by using solar energy has been established.
