Photoluminescence and cathodoluminescence of LiF crystals doped with different binary metal oxides were measured in the wide temperature range of 50−300 K and time interval of 10−8−10−1 s after the nanosecond electron excitation pulse. Both as-grown those and crystals irradiated by an electron beam in range of absorbed dose up to 103 Gy were studied. It is shown that spectral-kinetic characteristics of the luminescence depend on the absorbed dose (type of created/accumulated color centers), the irradiation temperature, the concentration of hydroxyl, which promotes incorporation of the MeO complex (Ме: W, Ti, Fe, Li) into the crystal lattice, and the cation-dopants.
