A mirror is under normal circumstance used to reflect Electromagnetic radiation also known as photons (light) and in airport security or medical facilities, they use X-rays to detect anomalies inside objects or bodies to detect narcotics or injuries. However, I always wonder what if I add a mirror inside the luggage or put a mirror in front of me during scanning?
That in mind, how would an X-ray scanner see the mirror? Would it be invisible? I am sure I am not the first one to think of this, as a lot of security and criminals thought of this, however I never got an answer, so can someone tell me please?
If there are X-ray reflecting mirrors? Why don't Airport security ban these items and Mirrors all together? Would X-Ray mirror look like a normal mirror? Do they reflect visible light spectrum as well?
