Abstract: The off-specular (diffuse) nuclear resonant reflectivity of synchrotron radiation is a sensitive measure of the lateral autocorrelation of the magnetisation in thin films and multilayers. The width of the diffuse scattering peak measured at an electronically forbidden reflection is inversely proportional to the in-plane correlation length of the magnetisation direction. The average size of the in-plane antiferromagnetic domains is determined in different states of the same Fe/Cr superlattice. The hyperfine magnetic fields in coexisting small and large domains are measured independently.
