How do mirrors work/reflect things?

How do mirrors work/reflect things?

Historically, mirrors in the classical antiquity were made of solid metal (bronze, later silver) and they were too expensive for widespread use as well as being prone to corrosion. Due to polished metal's low reflectivity, antique mirrors also gave a darker picture compared to modern ones, making them unsuitable for indoor use with artificial lighting (candles or lanterns at the time).

The method of making mirrors out of ordinary glass was discovered by 16th century venetian glassmakers on the island of Murano, who covered the backside of plate glass with mercury, obtaining near-perfect reflection and imaging qualities. For over one hundred years venetian mirrors installed in richly decorated frames served as luxury decoration for palaces throughout Europe, but the secret of mercury process eventually arrived to London and Paris during the 17th century, due to industrial espionage. French workshops succeeded in large scale industrialization of the process, eventually making mirrors affordable to the masses, although mercury's toxicity remained a problem.

In modern times the mirror substrate is shaped, polished and cleaned, and is then coated. Glass mirrors are most often coated with non-toxic silver or aluminium, implemented by a series of coatings:

1. tin
2. silver
3. chemical activator
4. copper
5. paint

The tin is applied because silver will not bond with the glass. The activator causes the tin/silver to harden. Copper is added for long-term durability.[13] The paint protects the coating on the back of the mirror from scratches and other accidental damage.

In some applications, generally those that are cost-sensitive or that require great durability, mirrors are instead made from a single, bulk material such as polished metal.

For technical applications such as laser mirrors, the reflective coating is typically applied by vacuum deposition on the front surface of the substrate. This eliminates double reflections and reduces absorption of light in the mirror. Cheaper technical mirrors use a silver, aluminium, or gold coating (the latter typically for infrared mirrors), and achieve reflectivities of 90–95% when new. A protective overcoat may be applied to prevent oxidation of the reflective layer. Applications requiring higher reflectivity or greater durability use dielectric coatings, which can achieve reflectivities as high as 99.999% over a narrow range of wavelengths.
