Bulk single crystals of Yb3+:Gd3(AlxGa1−x)5O12 (Yb:GAGG) with dimensions of Φ26mm×30mm were successfully grown using the Czochralski method. The nominal Yb and Al contents in the raw materials were 5.0 and 10.0at%, respectively. The effective segregation coefficients of Yb3+ and Al3+ ions were measured, and the doping concentrations of Yb3+ and Al3+ ions in the crystal were calculated to be 6.25–6...
