YLiF4 and LuLiF4 pure and doped with Yb3+ ion were grown by the Czochralski technique under CF4atmosphere. X-ray irradiation was used to carry out a comparative study of the induced optical absorption phenomena and color center creation in the ultraviolet and visible spectral regions. The F-center absorption band at 315 and 340 nm in LLF and YLF, respectively, is the dominating induced absorption feature. The amplitude of the induced absorption is reduced by more than a factor of 10 in Yb-doped crystals compared to the undoped ones.
