The absorption and emission spectra were measured at 5 and 300 K. The positions of the selected Dy3+ levels and their Stark components, determined from optical spectra at 5K, are presented. In this work an attempt is made to assess the potential of dysprosium doped YAl3(BO 3)4 crystal as a laser active material operating near 570 nm. The emission cross-section of a potential laser line at 570 nm connected with 4F9/26H13/2 transition was estimated.
