Abstract

Off-specular neutron scattering from layered resonant systems has been studied. As an example, tri-layer neutron waveguides have been investigated experimentally by neutron reflectometry. In such systems, the neutron wave function is strongly localized in the guiding layer. The resonant states in the total reflection region lead to enhanced off-specular scattering from the interface roughness. The relation between the resonant states and off-specular scattering is discussed.
