Single crystals of perovskite-type LuAlO3 were successfully obtained for the first time in air at ambient pressure by a flux method using KF. Single crystals are transparent colorless or pale red cubes. Size of the cubes are 30-60 μm in edge. This compound belongs to orthorhombic system, space group is Pbnm, lattice parameters are α=5.103(5) Å, b=5.332 (5) Å, c=7.305 (7) Å. Contamination from the flux reagent to the crystals is not observed.
