MgF2 crystal Magnesium Fluoride

MgF2 or Magnesium Fluoride is positive uni-axial crystal with a very high optical transmittance from the vacuum UV to IR. It is regularly used for optical elements where extreme ruggedness and durability is required. It also has a large resistance to mechanical and thermal shock, to optical radiation, and is chemically stable, making it a very useful materials for UV and IR optics.

Why Choose HGO ?

HG OPTRONICS.,INC. has the ability to supply high quality MgF2 Magnesium Fluoride Crystal in mass production quantity. Material from HGO features with high transmittance in VUV(>70%) and UV wavelength ranges. Standard size for VUV windows are Dia.8 and Dia.6 with 1mm thickness.

HGO offer both a-cut (or [100] cut) MgF2 windows for the maximum birefringence and c-cut (or cut along the optical axis) with the minimum birefringence. Random-cut (cut along a random axis) MgF2 windows are also available. The thickness can be made as thin as 0.1mm. In addition, we can also produce other types of window crystals like YAG crystals, BaF2,LiF Crystals, etc.

HGO has a mass-production line for MgF2 crystals and have wide experiences and strong ability to supply such crystals with large quantity and in very short delivery time.

LiF crystal lithium fluoride

HGO grows LiF crystals in house using Czochralski technology. LiF crystal or lithium fluoride crystal is an optical material with outstanding transmittance in VUV region. It is also used for windows, prisms, and lenses in the visible and infrared in 0.104µm-7µm. LiF single crystal is sensitive to thermal shock and would be attacked by atmospheric moisture at 400°C. When working at a high temperature of 600°C, the LiF crystal softens and is slightly plastic, so it can be bent into radius plates. In addition irradiation produces color centers. Hence, users should take measures to protect LiF crystals from moisture and high energy radiation damages. What is more LiF can be cleaved along (100) plane and less commonly (110) plane. The optical characteristics are good and yet the structure is not perfect and cleavage is difficult.
