Title: Neutron reflecting supermirror structure

Abstract

This patent describes an improved neutron reflecting supermirror. It comprises plurality of stacked sets of bilayers of high and low neutron scattering materials, the materials deposited upon a substrate, one layer of each of the sets of bilayers consisting of titanium and the second layer of each of the sets of bilayers consisting of an alloy including nickel and a microstructure enhancing element, carbon, interstitially present in the nickel alloy layer to modify the nickel crystal, wherein the microstructure enhancing element has a high neutron scattering potential.
