Light transmittance and the Rf shielding effectiveness of a gold film on a glass substrate is investigated. The dependence of the transmittance of visible light upon the thickness or surface resistance of a gold film on a glass substrate is determined numerically by the optical properties of the gold film and glass substrate. The Rf shielding effectiveness produced in the far field over the frequency range of 100 MHz to 30 GHz by the gold film is calculated and compared with experimental data. An optimum condition is established between the light transmittance and the shielding effectiveness. The results are applicable to any transparent glass coated with any thin metallic film.
