Summary: In the last fifteen years or so neutron reflectometry has been established as a powerful and in many cases essential technique for studying surfaces and interfaces [1]. One of the particular strengths of the technique is that it can be applied to ‘wet ’ interfaces attaining information at better than molecular resolution [2, 3]. These properties of neutron reflectivity allied with the ability to advantage of hydrogen/deuterium exchange make it especially suitable to the study of interfaces in soft condensed matter systems. To this end the SURF [4] and CRISP [5] reflectometers have been established as world leading reflectometers. INTER will improve upon the capabilities of current reflectometers providing a pre-eminent facility for the study of interfacial structure in soft matter by neutron reflectometry. It will provide access to a range of interfaces (air/liquid, air/solid, liquid/liquid and liquid/solid), enable the use of smaller samples, allow studies of and access to a wide range of experimental parameters and expand the time scales that are observable for dynamic studies. These features will provide exciting new opportunities in soft matter research and related areas. Science Case
