14 September 1994 Birefringent characteristics of two new crystalline materials: CeF3 and LaF3
Author Affiliations +
We present data on two recently available uniaxial crystalline materials, cerium fluoride (CeF3) and lanthanum fluoride (LaF3). The characteristics presented include birefringence, transmission, temperature sensitivity, and field of view for wavelengths from the ultraviolet into the near infrared. Possible applications in polarization dependent devices are discussed. The optical properties of CeF3 and LaF3 are compared with commonly used crystalline materials.
