Preprint English OPEN
Steyerl, A.; Malik, S. S.; Desai, A. M.; Kaufman, C.;

We review the diffuse scattering and the loss coefficient in ultracold neutron reflection from slightly rough surfaces, report a surprising reduction in loss coefficient due to roughness, and discuss the possibility of transition from quantum treatment to ray optics. Th... View more
