Product Family Description

TECHSPEC® Calcium Fluoride (CaF2) Windows offer a low index of refraction, providing high transmission from 200 - 7000nm when used uncoated. To further increase transmission and reduce back reflections, a variety of AR coatings are available spanning wavelength regions from the Ultra-Violet (UV) to the Mid-Wave Infrared (MWIR). The high bulk damage threshold of calcium fluoride coupled with its low absorption makes it a popular choice for use with laser systems, including excimer lasers. TECHSPEC® Calcium Fluoride (CaF2) Windows are ideal for use as protective windows for gas detectors operating in the Vacuum UV (VUV) and MWIR, UV spectroscopy systems, cryogenically cooled thermal imaging systems, and as substrates for coatings requiring wideband substrate transmission. 

Note: Calcium fluoride is a relatively soft optical material and is more susceptible to scratches than typical glass windows.
