The synthesis conditions and the results of spectral-kinetic studies of disordered crystals series CaF2-LaF3-PrF3 with variable chemical composition are presented. The prospects of using these crystals as active media for the visible spectral range DPSS laser pumped by InGaN (GaN) laser diodes and operating on 4f-4f transitions of Pr3+ ions are discussed.
