Title: Growth and characterization of lithium yttrium borate single crystals

Single crystals of 0.1% Ce doped Li{sub 6}Y(BO{sub 3}){sub 3} have been grown using the Czochralski technique. The photoluminescence study of these crystals shows a broad emission at ∼ 420 nm corresponding to Ce{sub 3+} emission from 5d→4f energy levels. The decay profile of this emission shows a fast response of ∼ 28 ns which is highly desirable for detector applications.
