Description of Ytterbium Trifluoride Evaporation Materials

Ytterbium Fluoride (YbF3), also known as Ytterbium trifluoride, is a crystalline ionic compound. It is slightly soluble in water. Ytterbium Fluoride is widely used in fluoride glass.

Among optical film materials, yttrium fluoride (YbF3) has good light transmittance and low refractive index for ultraviolet to far infrared light (0.2~15μm), so it is often used as a low in the development of mid-infrared multilayer films.

These are exactly as described. I got these YbF3 evaporation pellets for my vacuum coating experiment and they're ideal for that purpose.
