Magnesium fluoride, MgF2 crystal belongs to tetragonal system, melting point is 1255 °C, high hardness, good mechanical properties, stable chemical properties, not easy to deliquesce and corrode. MgF2 main feature in optical performance is that it has a high transmittance in the vacuum ultraviolet region (more than 80% transmittance at 170 nm), and it is widely used in optical fiber communication, military industry and various optical components.
 
Magnesium fluoride (MgF2) crystal is suitable for windows and focusing mirrors of deep ultraviolet and excimer lasers. Because MgF2 is a tetragonal birefringent crystal, it is widely used in optical components such as optical fiber communication and wave plates.
