We present the first investigation of bright screening soliton formation in Erbium doped lithium niobate grown by the Czochrlaski technique (0.7% mol.). We analyse the formation of two-dimensional spatial soliton and study its long term stability. Measurements of photovoltaic current show that presence of erbium in the lattice cause an increase of the current density. Both dynamic of soliton formation and photovoltaic measurements indicates a lower NA content in erbium doped samples compared to undoped samples.
