    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Neutron reflectometry has been used to study liquid metal-ceramic interfaces in situ. A high-temperature facility designed and commissioned for use on the SURF reflectometer at the ISIS beamline, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, is described. Results from a study of two Sn-Ti alloys on sapphire up to 1173 K are presented and the interfacial composition established by interpretation of the recorded reflectivity profiles. Overall the results are in good agreement with previously published work inferred from the analysis of solidified structures and the neutron reflection technique, established as a unique method for the high temperature analysis of buried solid/liquid interfaces.
