Tiivistelmä

An alloy of a mixture of fluorides MgF2 and AlF3 with CaF2 has been obtained in a 3-kW solar furnace. It was supposed that a minor CaF2 additive compensates for the tensile stresses appearing in thin MgF2 and AlF3 films, with their mechanical properties being thereby improved. The results of X-ray phase analysis demonstrated that both components of the mixture are present in the alloy, while the complex oxide CaAl4O7, the formation of which is attributed to the melting in air, is only identified in AlF3: CaF2 = 95: 5 (wt %). The increase in the transmittance of glass and polyethylene terephthalate upon deposition onto their surface of a thin film of the material synthesized in the study is due to the optical properties of AlF3 and MgF2.
