ABSTRACT
It is shown that the translucence of a substrate strongly influences light transmission by glass articles modified by sol-gel coatings. In contrast to glass, where light scattering is proportional to the refractive index, an inverse proportionality has been found in the films studied, which can be explained by the influence of porosity on the decrease of the refractive index of the coating.
