The authors review the growth conditions, properties, and applications of epitaxial alkaline earth fluoride films on Si substrates. The lattice mismatches of CaF//2, SrF//2, and BaF//2 to Si are about 0. 6%, 6. 8%, and 14. 2% at room temperature, respectively. The films are grown by molecular beam epitaxy or vacuum-deposition onto heated substrates, in which molecular beams of the fluorides are formed by evaporating polycrystalline fluoride grains.
