Neutron reflectometry is an experimental technique that provides information about the thickness, composition and roughness of thin films and other layered structures. Owing to the large sensitivity of neutrons to for example hydrogen and lithium, neutron reflectometry can be used to in operando study battery materials, metal hydrides but also has many applications in soft matter science. The neutron reflectometer at the Delft Research Reactor is accessible to all scientist. Please click here for more information about the neutron reflectometer connected to the Delft Research Reactor.
