Neutron reflectometry study has been carried out in unpolarized (NR) and polarized (PNR) mode to understand the structure and magnetic properties of alloy formation at the interfaces of Ni/Ti multilayers on annealing. The PNR data from annealed sample shows a noticeable change with respect to the as-deposited sample. These changes are: a prominent shift of the multilayer Bragg peak to a higher angle and a decrease in the intensity of the Bragg peak. The PNR data from annealed sample revealed the formation of magnetically dead alloy layers at the interfaces. Changes in roughness parameters of the interfaces on annealing were also observed in the PNR data.
