reflectometry
 
 

Reflectometry uses neutrons scattered at grazing angles to probe the nuclear and magnetic composition of flat samples. Common types of materials studied include biological membranes, magnetic multilayers, and polymer films.  The NCNR has three reflectometers -  PBR, MAGIK, and NG-7 - each specially configured for different types of research.  Please visit the instrument pages (linked above) for specific information.
