An extension of Fresnel theory is used to describe how reflectivity from a periodic multilayer mirror generates an X-ray standing wave (XSW) above the mirror surface. This long-period XSW is used to study distribution profiles of atoms within deposited ultra-thin organic films and ions at the liquid-solid interface.
