The work presents results of a study of the pulsed cathodoluminescence uranium doped LiF crystals. Introduction of the activator (U) and the co-activator (OH) shown in occurrence of additional absorption in the range 260-320 nm. The activated crystals luminescence observed in the field of 400-530 nm when excited by pulsed electron beam with energy 250 keV. In all crystals, the main attenuation component has a value in the range of 40-70 μs. Crystals of lithium fluoride, activated by uranium, with injected coactivators can have highly efficient conversion of radiation energy into light in the visible range of the spectrum.
