TAG fibers were grown by the micro pulling down method from stoichiometric and alumina rich melts. Using the Czochralski technique polycrystalline TAG samples were obtained from alumina rich melts. It was shown that both growth methods the crystallization of TAP can be avoided by starting from a melt concerning less than 32 mol-% Tb2O3.
