Magnesium Fluoride (MgF2) Window 20mmdia x 1mmthk
Magnesium Fluoride (MgF2) is a colourless, hard and durable material and is birefringent. The material's durability and resistance to mechanical and thermal shock enable it to be used in harsh conditions, in the form of windows, while its birefringence makes it useful for polarizers in the UV waveband. It transmits between 0.1µm and 7µm and at over 90% between 0.4-5.0µm. Magnesium Fluoride has a hardness of about HK576, making it the hardest of the optical fluorides. It is stable in water, which means that it can be used for outer surfaces, such as windows.
