Ce and Pr doped YCOB single crystals were grown by the micro-pulling down (μ-PD) method and characterized as for the structure and chemical composition. The expected 420 nm emission of Ce3+ 4f-5d has been observed in Ce:YCOB. Pr:YCOB shows broad emission spectrum peaking around 350 nm and this emission can be well ascribed to the 5d-4f emission of Pr3+. Luminescence and scintillation characteristics of these crystals were also investigated.
