An effect of lutetium co-doping on photoluminescent and thermoluminescent properties of the Mn2+-doped (Lu-Y)AP crystals (with Lu content from 0 to 20% with respect to Y) grown by the Czochralski technique has been studied. It was found that the maximum of the thermoluminescent peak at 200°C is shifted towards higher temperatures at Lu content more than 5%. At the same time the position of the second thermoluminescent peak near 350°C remains unchanged. The observed changes in the thermoluminescent peak position are discussed in terms of the point defects of the material.
