In the present paper, garnet structured $Y_3Al_5O_{12}:Ce^{3+}$ (YAG : Ce) ceramic phosphor plate (CPP) for high power laser diode (LD) was prepared and optical properties were analyzed. We synthesized monodispersed spherical nano-sized YAG : Ce particles by liquid phase method, fabricated phosphor ceramic plate with the addition of $Al_2O_3$. $75{\mu}m$ and $100{\mu}m$ thick YAG : Ce CPPs were compared in terms of the factors of conversion efficacy, thermal quenching, luminance and correlated color temperature (CCT). In conclusion, conversion efficacy decreased by 25 % in both samples and $100{\mu}m$ thick sample provides better optical properties of thermal quenching, maximum light conversion efficacy and maximum luminance value.
