We report on a density functional theory calculation of the electronic structure and optical properties of gamma-Al2O3. We have made a comparison between the optical and electronic properties of the alpha and gamma phases of alumina. The calculated bulk modulus of the gamma phase is slightly lower than that of the a phase. The calculated static dielectric function and the optical constant of the gamma phase are very close to those of the alpha phase.
