Neutron reflectivity is a powerful tool for the study of surface layers and interfaces. Topics covered in this chapter include: the theory of elastic specular neutron diffraction; polarized neutron reflectivity; surface roughness; experimental methodology; resolution in real space; and applications of neutron reflectometry.
