The In-doped LiCaAlF6 [In:LiCAF] single crystals were grown by the micro-pulling-down (μ-PD) method, and the phases, chemical compositions, transmittance and radioluminescence spectra were investigated. All the grown crystals showed high transparency and single phase of LiCAF without visible cracks and inclusions except for the end part of In2%:LiCAF crystal which included the impurity phase. In the radioluminescence spectra of the In:LiCAF crystals under X-ray irradiation, the emission peak around 750 nm was revealed.
