MgF2 (Magesium Flouride) material

MgF2 (Magesium Flouride) is transparent over a extremely wide range of wavelengths .windows, lenses ,and prisms made of this materials can be used over the entire range of wavelengths from 0.12μm(vacuum ultraviolet ) to 8.0μm (infrared). High quality synthetic VUV grade MgF2 is quite expensive. Low grade MgF2 is sometimes used in the infrared but it is inferior to CaF2. MgF2 is tough and works and polishes well, but it is slightly birefringent and should be cut with the optic axis perpendicular to the plane of the window or lens.


We can provide deep ultraviolet ( excimer level ), ultraviolet and infrared level calcium fluoride materials and components.
We have all kinds of orientation, such as <111>、<110>、<100> etc.
We have all shapes of material, such as round rod、square plate、step、prism、wedge and so on.
We have all kinds of conventional plate、spherical and wedge in our stock.

We have the size of 4mm-200mm mono crystal and poly crystal materials and optical element
