We measured the photoluminescence (PL), the optical absorption and the magneto-optical absorption of -FeSi 2 single crystals which were fabricated by a chemical vapor transport method. The characteristic 0.8 eV-PL bands of -FeSi 2 thin films were not observed in our single crystals. However, we found new two PL lines (0.717 and 0.737 eV) and new two absorption peaks (0.858 and 0.909 eV) at low temperatures. All the samples which were measured in this study were classified into two groups
