Paper Abstract

We present X-ray measurements at FeKa (6.4 keV) which range over 3-4 orders of magnitude of reflected intensity from four metal coated samples (Au, Ir, Pt and Ni). For one Au sample, the total reflectivity was also measured at MoKa (17.5 keV). The results indicate that a model consisting of a bulk region with a top layer having a variation from bulk density to zero is a good description of the coating. They also indicate that the coating process rather than the material is crucial in achieving high reflectivity.
