Lithium fluoride (LiF) crystal have good optical transmission properties and can be used as Ultraviolet and Infrared optical window in the spectral range of 0.11 μm~7.5 μm. Especially in deep Ultraviolet(VUV). With the development of deep Ultraviolet technology in recent years, Becaise of Lithium fluoride (LiF) window have high transmittance and short cut-off wavelength in the deep ultraviolet band, It have received more and more attention.
 
At the same time, Lithium fluoride (LiF) crystal has excellent scintillation properties and has become an important crystal material in the fields of high-energy physics and nuclear physics, nuclear medicine and other fields.

We can customize different size and thickness of Lithium fluoride(LiF) optical window upon requirements, such as Lithium fluoride(LiF) round wafer, Square substrate and Cylinder, or Punch holes and other shapes.
