One crucial issue for applications of inorganic scintillators in future HEP experiments is radiation damage in a severe radiation environment, such as the HL-LHC. While radiation damage induced by ionization dose is well understood, investigations are on-going to understand radiation damage induced by hadrons, including both charged hadrons and neutrons. Aiming at understanding neutron induced radiation damage in fast inorganic scintillators, BaF_2, LYSO/LFS and PWO crystals were irradiated at LANSCE by a combination of particles, including neutrons, protons and γ-rays. The results indicate that LYSO/LFS and BaF_2 crystal plates are radiation hard up to 4 × 10^(15) fast neutrons/cm^2.
