Abstract

This paper briefly discusses questions of enhancing the transparency and surface strength of “soft” materials of the UV and IR ranges (MgF<sub>2</sub>, CaF<sub>2</sub>, BaF<sub>2</sub>, LiF, etc.) by using nanoobjects. For a matrix based on MgF<sub>2</sub>, BaF<sub>2</sub>, or LiF, a substantial variation is established in the transmission spectra in the UV region. It is also shown that the strength parameters of the materials being studied can be improved by a factor of 3-10.
