Based on our previous work, I review the applications of x-ray refraction and the x-ray waveguide phenomenon to organic and inorganic thin films in the present paper. Under grazing incidence conditions, observations of refracted x-rays and guided x-rays due to the x-ray waveguide phenomenon provide information about thin film structures, and thus have potential as alternative methods to x-ray reflectivity. To date, we have measured the spectra of the refracted x-rays and guided x-rays from end faces of thin films using white incident x-ray beams, and utilized them for the determination of film density and thickness. Some of this work is summarized in the present paper. At the end of this paper, I describe our recent achievement in this field, namely the in situ measurement of guided x-rays during the film degradation process due to strong synchrotron radiation damage. Moreover, I discuss the perspective of the present technique from the viewpoint of micro-characterization and real-time estimation of thin films.
