Product Details

BaF2 (Barium Flouride) material

BaF2 is transparent from the ultraviolet to the infrared, from 150-200nm to 11-11.5μm, and can be used as a material to make optical components such as lenses. It is used in windows for infrared spectroscopy, in particular in the field of fuel oil analysis. Its transmittance at 200nm is relatively low (0.60), but at 500nm it goes up to 0.96-0.97 and stays at that level until 9μm, then it starts falling off (0.85 for 10μm and 0.42 for 12μm). The refractive index is about 1.46 from 700nm to 5μm. Barium Flouride is used as a preopacifying agent and in enamel and glazing frits production. It is also used in metallurgy, as molten bath for refining aluminum.

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.
