An in-house grazing X-ray reflection (GXR) apparatus has been newly built for studying the liquid surface, and the liquid-solid and liquid-liquid interfaces. This apparatus consists of a high flux rotating anode X-ray generator, pairs of slits for incident and diffracted beams, a channel-cut Ge 440 crystal monochromator and a double-axis diffractometer. This system was tested by measuring X-ray reflectivity profiles from free surface of water or mercury, and the water-mercury interface.
