A study on Eu3+ -doped Bi4Ge3O12 (BGO) fiber single crystals grown by the micro-pulling-down (μ-PD) method with the resistance heating system was presented. It was found that Eu doping resulted in the partial suppression of the intrinsic BGO emission in the radioluminescence spectrum. It was proved using thermally stimulated luminescence (TSL) measurements, that Eu3+ doping strongly influenced the concentration of TSL active traps.
