|Science with Neutrons|
A neutron supermirror is a highly polished surface used in connection with neutron beams.
Supermirrors are produced by depositing and polishing large numbers of layers of a reflecting substance, such as silicon, nickel, titanium or nickel/titanium composite, on a substrate. In this way, the critical angle of total reflection becomes , where is the number of layers and the angle of total reflection for a single layer.
