    New possibilities of ultrathin film thickness and density determination are demonstrated by means of x-ray method in the form of x-ray standing wave technique (XSW) and total external fluorescence study (NTEF). Several samples with ultrathin Fe films protected by carbon layers and with bare Fe...
