DIY Fluoride UV Lens, Platinum in camera
I had been opened an thread on laser salt windows making technology transferred in to camera lens building. Final conclusion Sodium Chloride Rock Salt Transparent medium was very sensitive to moisture and self cracking nature.
After few years passed , Now I found fluoride salts have 95 abbe number and 1.45 refractive index number and have ultra wide transmission range.
I found fluoride is used in toothpastes and sold as in capsules , cheap and it can be soluble in water.
I thought if we can evaporate the water , may be we can make an transparent fluoride lens in the mold.
How would it be possible ?
