Barium fluoride is chemically termed as BaF2 with chemical composition of barium and fluoride and is a salt. It is a solid material of transparent crystals that occurs in nature as frankdicksonite. Barium Fluoride is water insoluble and a source for use in oxygen sensitive applications such as metal production. Fluoride compounds have varied applications in existing technologies and science, from oil refining and etching to synthetic organic chemistry and the manufacture of pharmaceuticals.

BaF2 has an emission component with sub-nanosecond decay time. Barium Fluoride has a varied range of applications in modern technologies and science, ranging from etching and oil refining to the manufacture of pharmaceuticals synthetic and organic chemistry. Barium Fluoride is also used in spectroscopic components and commonly suitable for the passive IR band (8 to 14µm), as well as view-port window for thermography. Barium fluoride distinct crystals are cross-luminescent scintillators with short emission times, heavy, and high primary photon intensities.
