Future HEP experiments present stringent challenges to inorganic scintillators in both fast timing response and radiation tolerance. This paper reports recent progress in developing ultrafast inorganic scintillators with sub-ns decay time for future precision timing detectors and high-rate experiments. Performance of fast and ultrafast crystals with mass production capability are compared to CsI crystals which are used for the Mu2e calorimeter. Examples are LYSO:Ce, BaF₂ and BaF₂:Y, which are considered for Mu2e-II. Crystal radiation hardness against gamma-rays and hadrons is reported. Current status and development effort for the BaF₂:Y crystals are discussed.
