Monoclinic RbPb2Cl5:Dy single crystal was tested for femtosecond laser writing at wavelength of 800nm. Dependence of permanent refractive index change upon input pulse energy was investigated. Non-linear coefficients of multiphoton absorption and self-focusing were measured. Kerr non-linear coefficient was found to be as high as 4.0*10-6 cm2/GW.
