Hello everyone, im new to this forum, and to physics really, so i apologize in advance for silly mistakes.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Bascially, im a keen A-level student, and i spend much of my spare time reading and trying to learn physics, far above me, it would be fair to say, i've jumped in at the deep end.

That aside, i was thinking the other day, and came across the idea of reflection at a quantum level, i've asked both my physics and my maths teacher (who has a PhD in nuclear physics) and none could come up with a useful answer. I was just wondering, exactly HOW does it work? I assume it has little to do with electron energy levels? Because photons released are of discrete energy levels?

I'd be most grateful if someone could try to explain it, without being too complex

Thanks
