(YbxY1-x)2O3 (x = 0.0, 0.005, 0.05, 0.08 and 0.15) promising single crystal laser rods of 4.2 mm in diameter and 15-20 mm in length have been grown from the rhenium crucible by the micro-pulling-down method in Ar + H2(3-4%) atmosphere. Linear decrease of lattice constant with the increase of Yb3+-content was observed. High homogeneity of the Yb3+-dopant distribution has been demonstrated. Absorption, emission and Raman spectra have been recorded and decay time was approximated.
