Title: Reflection and transmission coefficients for conformal interfaces

Abstract: We probe a generic two dimensional conformal interface via a collider experiment. We measure the energy and charges which are reflected and transmitted through the interface. We find that the average transmitted energy is independent of the way the state is constructed and determined by the central charge and a single piece of CFT data. We comment on the universality of the result and discuss some examples.
