  • T ≥ 94% for λ = 200 nm to 6 μm
  • >50% Transmission at 120 nm
  • Ø1/2" and Ø1" Versions Available

Thorlabs' Magnesium Fluoride windows are available in Ø1/2" and Ø1" sizes. They offer excellent transmission from deep in the ultraviolet region to the mid-infrared. MgF2 windows are extremely durable and introduce minimal aberrations. Thorlabs' MgF2 windows are cut with the optical axis parallel to the c-axis of the crystal to minimize birefringence.

MgF2 windows are well suited for deep-UV applications, even extending into the vacuum-UV region. They offer >50% transmission at 120 nm, making them suitable for use with excimer laser systems, as well as applications involving the Hydrogen Lyman-α line at 121 nm. Thorlabs' MgF2 windows are also usable in the UVA, UVB, visible and IR ranges, with approximately 94% transmission from 200 - 1000 nm, and approximately 95% transmission from 1 - 6 µm.

Please, could you provide me with data on MgF2 window damage thresholds for 10 ns-pulsed UV laser, as the product description specifies that it is suitable for excimer laser and deep UV applications? Thankx

Thank you for contacting Thorlabs. Unfortunately, we don't test or specify LIDT for bulk optics. Based on your beam parameters (266 nm, 100 mJ, 8 ns, 10 Hz, 3mm) and the literature available online, we expect the WG60530 to not sustain damage, but we cannot provide any guarantees for this at the moment.
