CaF2 Window

CaF2 Window

CaF2 Window (Calcium Fluoride Window) is the most advantage product from A-Star’s Plano Workshop. Fluorides are usually toxic to humans, however CaF2 is considered relatively harmless due to its extreme insolubility.

CaF2 Window / Calcium Fluoride Windows

A-Star are the leading Optical Windows supplier forCaF2 Window , We has been exported Calcium Fluoride Windows to all over the world.

CaF2 Window (Calcium Fluoride Window) is the most advantage product from A-Star’s Plano Workshop. Fluorides are usually toxic to humans, however CaF2 is considered relatively harmless due to its extreme insolubility.
CaF2 material is commonly used as a window material for both infrared and ultraviolet wavelengths, since it is transparent in these regions (about 0.15 μm to 9 μm) and exhibits extremely weak birefringence. The birefringence of calcium fluoride exceeds tolerable limits. This problem with birefringence can be mitigated through optimized growth process. It is particularly important as an ultraviolet optical material for integrated circuit lithography.

High quality CaF2 MgF2 Windows, Optical Windows
An Optical Window is an optically flat. These regular windows are applied to isolate different physical environments while allowing light pass. When selecting windows,please consider materials, transmission, scattering, parallelism and resistance to certain environment. It can be widely used on laser technology, IR detector and imaging technology etc.

Astar offers standard and high precision optical glass windows in round ,rectangular, wedge windows and custom shape and size with different optical glasses,Fused Silica, Sapphire, ZnSe, Zns and IR crystal. The high precision parallelism of 10 arc seconds, surface quality of 10/5 and flatness of λ/20. Single layer or multi-layer anti-reflection coatings are available.
