Question is that if you created a light beam that matched the frequency of the mirror that was placed in front of it in a vacuum, and placed an identical mirror at the other end and aligned them so that they will reflect back and forth. Will there be any energy loss (at what rate is it lost (I read this in an article response)? If so, how much (I will then calculate the loss in energy (Percent or energy level, to see how long it will last)? The light bounces back and forth in a vacuum just between the mirrors. My next question is that I have looked into the interaction of material and photons in respect to their frequency and matter. However, I have found contradicting data on the interaction of photons on each other. If two electrons bounce off each other, what happens? I have read that two beams of light hitting each other will at their incident angle disperse. However, will the photons lose energy? My next question is that what the best reflecter of light/Ultraviolet light is. I have read that snow is the best reflector of light. However, I am told to find out the next best light in respect to the spectrum of light that is (visible and ultraviolet) listed above. What is the best for this (Mirror, metal, glass, etc)? How to you tell.
Re: What is the light loss rate in a box (mirror, etc) of ultraviolet light?
