Let's say we have a laser beam coming from a source called X, we would like to change its direction so that it would hit directly on the object that we have. What would be the possible solutions?

Welcome to the PF. :smile:

What are your thoughts so far? Is this for a schoolwork assignment?

Also, can you explain why it might be better to use a "first surface mirror" versus a standard mirror for reflecting a laser beam? :smile:

Remember - laser light is still light. What you learned about light will be right for lasers (except when you get very advanced) .
