The synthesis of a new garnet, Er3Li0.275Nb0.275Ga4.45O12 (ErLNGG), by solid-state reaction, is reported. A comparison of the fluorescence spectra of Er3+ in ErLNGG, Er-doped (0.1 at.%) calcium lithium niobium gallium garnet (CLNGG), and Er(50 at.%):CLNGG is presented. The narrowing of luminescence lines suggests an ordering of the partially disordered CLNGG with the increase of erbium concentration.
