Abstract
In this Brief Report we discuss an effect of accelerated mirrors which has remained hitherto unnoticed: the formation of a field condensate near its surface for massive fields. From the viewpoint of an observer attached to the mirror, this effect is rather natural because a gravi tational field is felt there. The novelty here is that since the effec t is not observer dependent even inertial observers will detect the fo rmation of this condensate. We further show that this localization is in agreement with Bekenstein's entropy bound.
