Pulsed spectrometry with time resolution has been used to study processes for creation of self-localized excitons and F centers under the action of a pulsed electron flux of nanosecond duration at temperatures in the region from 80 to 600 K in CaF2 and LiF crystals. It is shown that an alternative to creation of self-localized excitons in the triplet state with increased crystal temperature during irradiation is formation of an F-H pair. A comparative analysis of the effectiveness of the processes for creation of elementary defects in the crystals studied is given.
