Abstract : Data are given on host materials for lasers that use the transition- metal ions. Included in each section are the crystallographic data, x-ray data, crystal-field components crystal field parameters, and spin-orbit constants. One section contains the phenomenological free-ion parameters which have been obtained by fitting the reported free-ion data. There is a bibliography for each host which, depending on the host, is more or less complete. The data contained on each host material will be updated periodically, and data on new host materials will be added. Keywords: Transition-metal ions; Crystal-field parameters; Crystal-field components; Spectra.
