Paper Abstract

The Czochralski crystal growth of calcium fluorapatite Ca5(PO4)3F and calcium- strontium fluorapatite (Ca1-xSrx)5(PO4)3F is reported. The growth conditions for producing the rare earth and chromium doped crystals of high quality are presented. The influence of the replacement of some calcium for strontium in FAP on crystal quality and on spectroscopic properties is discussed.
