However, their mixed crystals have not been investigated.
NIST scientists are attempting to nullify the birefringence by using mixed crystals of calcium fluoride and barium fluoride, a substance that exhibits opposite birefringence behavior.
The first [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 12 OMITTED] was given the now discredited name "breislakite." The name is still used by local collectors, as "breislakite" is now known to be either ludwigite or vonsenite, the two occurring together and even as mixed crystals at this locality, and being indistinguishable without chemical analysis.
The basic structure of the lamellar mixed crystals consists of apatitic lamellas sandwiching an OCP lamella (20).
Necessary conditions for the occurrence of mixed crystals (crystals containing more than one species) are: 1) good miscibility and/or compatibility of the mers and 2) metric and chemical similarity of the chains.
NIST researchers are pursuing potential solutions to the problem involving mixed crystals to compensate for the birefringence effect.
