Abstract


Most systems consisting of LiF and REF3 (RE: rare earth) possess a eutectic between LiF and an intermediate compound RELiF4. This eutectic shows upon crystallization ordering that could be useful for its application as metamaterial. Aspects of material preparation,
phase diagram studies, and the growth of self-organized eutectic structures are reported.
