For more than a decade, neutron reflectometry has been an active part of the research program at NIST and, over the years, a broad range of experiments have been performed on polymeric, magnetic, superconducting, and biomimetic thin film systems. Some examples include studies of diblock copolymer lamellar ordering , the magnetic coupling in “Giant Magneto-Resistance” and other multilayers [2,3], the structure of Langmuir-Blodgett films , the corrosion of electrode surfaces , the oxide layers of semiconductor surfaces, the absorption of macromolecules by biomimetic bilayers, and grazing angle diffraction experiments with polarized neutrons .
