Because of their high stopping power (X_0 = 1.14 cm), fast (t = 40 ns) and bright (4 times of BGO) scintillation and good radiation hardness, cerium doped silicate based heavy crystal scintillators (LSO and LYSO) have attracted a broad interest in the high energy physics community pursuing precision electromagnetic calorimeter in severe radiation environment. We present in this paper current status of large size LSO and LYSO crystals adequate for HEP applications. The optical and scintillation properties and their radiation hardness are discussed.
