This paper presents the results of investigations into the optical properties of LiF crystals doped with oxides of different metals (Li, W, Ti, Fe). It has been proved that, during the growth of crystals, nanodefects containing polyvalent dopant ions and oxygen in different states (O2-, OH-, O2 -) are formed in the crystalline matrix. It has been shown that these nanodefects are sinks of electronic excitations and determine the direction and efficiency of radiation-induced processes.
