Sensitivity variation of gamma irradiated LiF:Mg,Ti after annealing at temperatures of 300-500°C has been studied. This variation is shown to be due to concurrent processes of sensitization and damage. Annealing of irradiated crystals leads to restoration of initial sensitivity. The damage decay time is approximately an order of magnitude greater than the decay time of the sensitization. The experimental data are interpreted quantitatively within the scope of included gamma track overlapping. © 1993.
