    Neutron supermirrors are increasingly important devices for transporting, bending, and focusing neutron beams. Reflected neutrons from a supermirror are divided into specular and off-specular (diffuse) components. Suppression of the diffuse component is important since it reduces the...

    The diffuse scattering of x rays by thin films limited by rough interfaces is presented theoretically in terms of height–height correlation functions. The method employed, analogous to the use of Green functions, allows a rigourous treatment down to grazing incidences. An expression for...

    The diffuse scattering of x rays by black-soap films has been investigated. The results were analyzed using a treatment of surface scattering developed in a companion paper. We show that the fluctuations of the surfaces limiting the film are correlated at wavelengths on the order of 100 nm. The...

    The scattering of neutrons, x-rays, or light by a polydisperse system of particles is studied. As is well known, for fixed wave vector q the scattering intensity I(q) is a quadratic function of the scattering length density of the external medium. The minimum of the parabola is the minimal...
