We have reviewed structure studies of polymer thin films using synchrotron radiation X-ray and neutron reflectivity as well as recently developed grazing incidence small-angle X-ray and neutron scattering, including studies on polymer thin films with embedded ordered nanometer cells, distribution of glass transition temperature Tg in thin polystyrene films, and dewetting process of polymer blend thin films.
