Abstract

Energy dependence of the optical constants of boron carbide in the short period Ru / B 4 C and Mo / B 4 C multilayers (MLs) are evaluated from complete reflectivity scans across the boron K edge using the energy-resolved photon-in–photon-out method. Differences between the refractive indices of the B 4 C material inside and close to the surface are obtained from the peak profile of the first order ML Bragg peak and the reflection profile near the critical angle of total external reflection close to the surface. Where a Mo / B 4 C ML with narrow barrier layers appears as a homogeneous ML at all energies, a Ru / B 4 C ML exhibits another chemical nature of boron at the surface compared to the bulk. From evaluation of the critical angle of total external reflection in the energy range between 184 and 186 eV , we found an enriched concentration of metallic boron inside the Ru-rich layer at the surface, which is not visible in other energy ranges.
