Its similar to the behavior you see when applying a dielectric or a SSS to a plane, it may look similar but its no correct. In the way it works here, the IOR could have dielectric properties and the engine is acting as the object where its applied has thickness. In your example, putting you camera inside a cube is like putting inside several planes, so its the same problem. For an IOR to work correctly must be applied to objects with thickness.

yes it work
quick test :
left : thick zinc / right : thin zinc ( the same material used : zinc selenide)

Ok, got it. It makes sense.

Thanks!
