Environmentally friendly, high-quality, and transparent-colorless calcium chlorapatite (Ca5Cl(PO4)3 films were easily fabricated for the first time by the flux evaporation of the NaCl flux. The intermediate layer was essential to form the chlorapatite film on the sapphire surface. The film is thought to epitaxially grow on the (0001) sapphire surface because very smooth and well-developed (1010) faces were observed.
