Description of Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) Crystal Substrates

Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) is a non-uniaxial crystal with large birefringence and a wide spectral range. CaCO3 crystals are suitable for visible and near-infrared polarizing materials. CaCO3 is a mineral crystal with high birefringence and polarization characteristics. It is mainly used in the defense industry and high-precision optical instruments and has important applications in high-end radio and astrophysics.
