    If a piece of mirror is observed under a high magnification optical microscope, then what would one see??

    I am working on observing metallic microstructure. I was asked to prepare a mirror like finish for the specimen, that was to be observed under the optical microscope. But I wondered what I would see..

    Also this prompted me to think about the basics of mirror, in terms of surface physics.

    The mirror will be magnified αη∂ any ray that strikes it will also be magnified by same value of magnification!if you were to place an object in front of the mirror αη∂ observed the image formed you still will get same size when viewing the object directly.
