Barium Fluoride is an inorganic chemical compound that can be found in nature as frankdicksonite. It is most well-known for its applications in optical glass manufacturing.
As an optical material, barium fluoride is one of the fastest scintillators for the detection of high energy particles such as X-rays and gamma rays. Barium fluoride has a lower UV transmittance as well as a lower water and thermal shock resistance than the other optical fluorides. Notably, however, it also has the highest resistance to high-energy radiation.
