BLACK THIN FILM VACUUM COATINGS ON GLASS


 

I WOULD LIKE TO PRODUCE A VACUUM COATED SURFACE ON GLASS THAT IS A BLACK FINISH . IF THIS IS NOT POSSIBLE COULD I COAT A BASE METAL SUCH AS ALUMINUM OR COPPER THAT I CAN MAKE BLACK .

There are so many questions to ask here! If you just need the glass to be black, moving the glass in a candle flame would produce a very black "carbon black" coating, albeit it would be very "un-resistant" to abrasion. Maybe MoS? how about AgS? Can you supply any more details about the requirements of the surface?
