The technique of neutron reflection has been developed by us to investigate a variety of thin film electrochemical systems, including polymer bilayers, matrix-trapped active biological molecules and inorganic oxides. Measurements have been made with the electrodes in contact with the electrolyte, allowing studies of structural rearrangements after polymerisation, redox cycling and solvent exchange have taken place. In this paper we demonstrate these possibilities for the technique by concentrating on thin layers of an electrochemically produced polymer, polybithiophene.
