Special features and prospects of using high-current nanosecond electron beams for probing the parameters of solids are examined. Of all the variety of signals carrying information on the characteristics of the test object under electron-beam excitation, the potentialities and features of pulsed cathodoluminescence of dielectric and semiconducting materials and of optical absorption (emission) of atoms evaporated by electron beams from metal surfaces or those of conducting rocks are discussed in detail.
