Simultaneous measurements of neutron reflectivity and prompt gamma ray emission, from samples with buried Gd layers, are shown to be of significant aid in determining the depth profile of the entire sample. Because of resonant enhancement of the neutron standing waves in the sample, the gamma ray signals are considerably enhanced making these experiments possible. A possible application of this technique to study grazing angle neutron diffraction is also mentioned.
