Fine Fluorides

Barium Fluoride :


Powder for Optical Materials

MPIL high purity BaF2 powder is suitable for optics applications.

BaF2 is transparent from UV to IR and used for making optics components such as lenses and windows. It is most resistant to high energy radiation and is a very fast scintillator.

Some important end uses of BaF2 are:

  • Detection of X-rays and Gamma-rays
  • IR spectroscopy especially oil analysis
  • PET (Positron Emission Tomography) for detection of cancer cells
  • Space optics
