Reflectometer - Offspec
View full-size image
Offspec is an advanced reflectometer giving access to nanometre length scales parallel and perpendicular to interfaces. It uses the technique of neutron spin-echo to encode the path that neutrons take through the instrument.
Measurements of specular reflectivity give information about structure perpendicular to a surface interface, but an increasing number of important science and technology issues in the study of thin films, multilayers and interfaces concern structure in the plane of the interface.
Offspec can perform a variety of different measurements:
