Need gold plated glass




I am looking for 1mm thick soda glass that has a thin gold film on one side. It needs to be slightly conductive but still pass visible light. I am thinking of the face masks I remember the Apollo astronauts wearing. The glass will be cut to 25mm x 75mm size for use on medical instruments.

Direct gold adhesion to glass may be a problem. Also, gold becomes opaque very quickly at about 100 A thickness. What transparency are you expecting, 50%, 30% ? Do you need a transparent conductive film or must have gold?
