Using the micro-pulling-down method, (Ce,Sr)-doped PrAlO3 square-shaped single crystals (4×4×12 mm) were grown. Structural parameters studied by X-ray powder diffraction were consistent with R3̄m space group. Compositional homogeneity was checked with electron probe micro-analysis and found quite uniform. Absorption spectra and luminescence characteristics under UV and X-ray excitations were measured at room temperature with no Ce-related emission appeared.
