Eu doped BaCl2/LiF eutectics were grown by the micro-pulling down method and their directionally solidified eutectic (DSE) system has been investigated. The grown eutectic showed main phases of cubic LiF and orthorhombic BaCl2. In these eutectics, the 399 nm emission of Eu2+ 4f5d was obtained. It shows the intrinsic decay time of about 410 ns. The light yield of the 1-mm-thick eutectic showed 7000 ph/5.5 MeV alpha-ray.
