The effect of the co-precipitated materials on the microstructural homogenity and elements redistribution in GGAG:Ce single crystals were investigated. The samples homogenity was confirmed with EDS analysis including both mapping and linear scanning. Both methods demonstrate the lack of elements segregation in samples.
