    Abstract

    Preparation and vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) transmission spectra of aluminium fluoroberyllate glasses, MgF2-CaF2-SrF2-AlF3-BeF2 (MCSA-Be) and MgF2-CaF2-SrF2-AlF3-YF3-B eF2 (MCSAY-Be), were studied. The influence of YF3 and BeF2 on the thermal stabilization against crystallization and VUV transmittance was investigated. With increasing the BeF2 content, the crystallization tendency decreased and the absorption edge shifted to shorter wavelength in the MCSA-Be and MCSAY-Be glasses. The MCSA-20Be glass composition exhibited the shortest wavelength UV absorption edge (∼147 nm) and the highest transmittance at 157 nm (60% for 2 mm sample thickness). The transmission values at 157 nm and the slope (steepness) of the absorption edge were found to be significantly influenced by the trace amount of Fe2+ derived from the BeF2 raw materials.
