The renewed interest in development of vibronic tunable lasers has brought new activity in materials field, namely, into crystal growth of new, and sometimes not so new, laser host crystals. A number of oxide crystals such as alexandrite, emerald, various garnets, and tungstates were proposed to be used, were used, or are being tested along with fluoride based materials (l),(2),(3).
