The lattice thermal vibrations of Er:Yb:GdCa4O(BO 3)3 (EYGCOB) crystals were studied. It was shown that the lattice thermal vibrations of EYGCOB studied by the Raman and thermal expansion measurements reveal the crystal thermal conductance and thermomechanical properties to be outstanding especially along the b direction. The Raman spectra and data of six Raman tensor elements αXX, αYY, αZZ, αXZ, αYZ, recorded in EYGCOB in a wave-number range of 50-1600 cm-1 at room temperature were shown.
