Abstract
The behavior of high-purity fluorite crystals under the action of ionising radiation (fast electrons and roentgen) and also intensive KrF- and ArF-laser radiation has been investigated. On the basis of these experimental results and literature data the benefits of high-purity fluorite for manufacturing of windows and other optical elements for excimer lasers were demonstrated.
