Source: Intrinsic Crystal Technology Co. Ltd. (ICC)Source: Intrinsic Crystal Technology Co. Ltd. (ICC)An optical material with a minimum refractive index and a spectral range of 120-7,000 nm can be processed into prisms, lenses and windows used for thermal imaging systems, space optical systems and excimer laser systems.

Lithium fluoride (LiF) crystals offered by Intrinsic Crystal Technology Co. Ltd. (ICC) are an ideal solution when manufacturing optical components that must withstand rigorous environments such as thermal imaging systems, space optical systems and excimer laser systems.

LiF crystals exhibit high aqueous solubility and coefficient of thermal expansion. These characteristics prevent components from deliquescence and deformation, which is needed when designing hardened optical components.
