Applying a thin silver coating to small cenospheres


I am trying to find a technique to apply a thin silver coating on to small cenospheres. These are small ceramic spheres ranging is size from 20 to 50 micrometers in diameter. Any information would be most appreciated.

Thank you!

The mirroring technique can be tried to coat the cenospheres externally.

Actually the mirror method is not quite correct, carefully laying silver and other metals on cenospheres is a bit tricky when producing a high quality material, so much so it has frustrated a lot of scientists over the years.. if you are looking for low quality results and are not worried about reflectivity, oxide and such. then that would be fine.
