To abtain large crystals for improving the physical and optical properties of materials, the crystal of Yb-doped S-FAP was sythesized by the Czochralski method, the growth process was analyzed, and its structure was determined. This material was confirmed to have a hexagonal structure, unit-cell parameters (a=b=0.9683(4) nm, c=0.7277(4) nm) are slightly different from the crystal parameters of S-FAP reported before.
