Na0.4R0.6F2.2 single crystals with fluorite structure were grown by the Stockbarger method. Optical transmission spectra were recorded on the 2 mm thick samples of these crystals at room temperature in the broad spectral region (0.2 - 12 micrometer). It was found that the spectra of crystals with Dy, Ho, Er and Tm ions have the clearly defined discrete structure with a large number of absorption bands in visible, UV and nearest IR regions. The spectra become simpler on going from Dy to Yb. The spectra of crystals with Y and Lu are simplest, almost coinciding and similar to the NaF-crystal spectrum. The peculiarities of these spectra are due to the REE-ions presence in crystalline structure. All single crystals studied have the IR absorption edge at (lambda) approximately equals 12 micrometer. The spectra obtained are compared with these of other fluorides.
