CALCIUM FLUORIDE (CaF2) Bi-convex LENSES

Alkor Technologies - manufacturer of custom Calcium Fluoride bi-convex lenses for Ultraviolet and Infrared applications.

We have own growth facility for CaF2 crystal growth. That is why we offer Calcium Fluoride (CaF2) bi-convex lenses at very competitive price - up to 80% lower than major online optical catalogs!

Biconvex CaF2 lenses

Maximal diameter of CaF2 bi-convex lenses is 80mm. Alkor manufactures VUV CaF2 lenses for 193nm and 157nm upon request.

Calcium Fluoride is used for lenses in transmision range 0.15-9Ám. Degradation due to to moisture in the atmosphere is minimal and polished surfaces of the CaF2 lenses may be expected to withstand several years exposure to normal atmospheric conditions. Because of CaF2 low refractive index, Calcium Fluoride can be used without an anti-reflection coating.
