The evolution process of primary Frenkel pair defect formation is modeled in alkali halide crystals by the Monte Carlo method. A systematic analysis is carried out of the temperature and time dependence of the efficiency of Frenkel pair accumulation in ionic crystals. The effect of the local heating of a crystal microvolume and of the interaction energy between the components of a F, H-pair on the defect-formation process of primary Frenkel pairs is investigated. It is shown that the local temperature and interaction energy between the F, H-pair being formed are basic factors which determine the relaxation process of correlated Frenkel pairs in ionic crystals following pulsed irradiation.
