We report the luminescence properties and decay profiles of Ce:YAlO3, Mn:YAlO3; and Ce,Mn:YAlO3 crystals grown by Czochralski method. The spectroscopic properties show that both Mn2+ ions and Mn4+ ions exist in Mn:YAlO3 and Ce,Mn:YAlO3 crystals. The Mn2+ ions have a broad emission band of 60 nm in Mn-doped YAlO3 crystal at 530 nm. The luminescence spectra also indicate that there is significant energy transfer between Ce3+ and Mn4+ in Ce,Mn:YAlO3 crystal. Because of the energy transfer, the first decay component in Ce,Mn:YAlO3 decreases from 24.5 to 10.8 ns, which is much faster than that of Ce:YAlO3.
