MgF2

Magnesium Fluoride (MgF2 crystal) is used for optical elements where extreme ruggedness and durability is required. Its useful transmission range is 0.11 µm - 8.5 µm. Irradiation does not lead to color centers. It is a rugged, hard material which is resistant to thermal and mechanical shock and can be worked to the highest standards. Considerable mechanical shock is needed to cause cleavage which is near perfect when it occurs. MgF2 single crystals is a positive crystal and slightly birefringent and usually supplied with the optic axis cut perpendicular to the window faces.

Magnesium Fluoride (MgF2 crystal) has the following exceptional properties that make it a very important optics crystal:
(1) High optical transmittance from the vacuum ultraviolet to the infrared spectrum region(0.11~8.5µm).
(2) Resistant to mechanical and thermal shock, to radiation.
(3) Chemically stable.
(4) Used for Optical prisms, lenses, wedges, windows, other optical components,and etc.
(5) A positive birefringent crystal, used for optical fiber communication.
