The scattering of neutrons with λ ^ 1 nm by a slightly rough boundary between homogeneous media was studied experimentally for the first time. The neutron scattering is in good agreement with the scattering of soft χ rays. The surface scattering rather than bulk scattering is found to be the basic mechanism.
