Strontium fluoride is a fluoride of strontium. It is a stable brittle white crystalline solid.Strontium fluoride is used as an optical material for a small range of special applications,for example, as an optical coating on lenses and also as a thermoluminescent dosimeter crystal. Another use is as a carrier of strontium-90 radioisotope in radioisotope thermoelectric generators.
