First Surface Mirrors Provide No Ghosting for Image Clarity

February 4, 2016

Most people are familiar with conventional mirrors that we see and use every day, from the bathroom mirror, a hand held mirror, or a car's rear view mirror. These mirrors use glass as a protective surface and have the mirror coating, commonly referred to as "silvering", on the back side, or "second surface". The exposed glass helps protect the mirror coating underneath from scratching or... Read More
