Product Family Description

Barium Fluoride (BaF2) Wedged Windows feature a 30 arcmin wedge to eliminate etalon effects, improving readout in detection and spectroscopy applications. With a low index of refraction of 1.48, these windows provide high transmission from 200nm to 12μm without the need of an anti-reflection (AR) coating. Barium fluoride windows can be used up to 800°C in a dry environment, but prolonged exposure to moisture can degrade transmission in the vacuum ultraviolet range. Barium Fluoride (BaF2) Wedged Windows are ideal for infrared spectroscopy, thermal imaging, and general UV-IR detection applications. Barium fluoride is also a fast scintillator and can be used for the detection X-rays, gamma rays, or other high energy particles.

Note: These optical windows are very sensitive to thermal shock.
