Abstract: Single crystals of lasing Tm, Ho:KYF(4) were successfully grown by the Czochralski method. A complete polarized spectroscopic investigation is given and it is shown that the inhomogeneous broadening of the spectra of rare earth ions can be ascribed to a disordered character of the KYF crystalline structure.
