I know only very little about the process, and I know the science is above everyone's pay grade here. I know the process is performed in a vacuum chamber, but I didn't know heat is involved. I've been told that it employs what are commonly referred to as "reactive metals" (titanium, niobium, etc.). Gold (I believe) is the least reactive of metals. Lastly, how do you get an electrostatic charge on glass? Is there a conductive coating applied to the surface first?
