Abstract : Experimental conditions have been determined which permit the building of lead melissate (2d = 165A), lead myristate (2d = 80.5A) and lead laurate (2d = 70A) multilayer soap film structures. Data is given comparing the quality of these structures with that of lead stearate. The variation of the width of the aluminum K alpha peak at half maximum intensity as a function of the number of layers present and the variation of the peak to background ratio as a function of the number of layers present is given for a lead myristate structure. Attempts to build multilayers of 9, 10, 12, 13-tetrabromstearic acid and the lead salt of pimaric acid were unsuccessful. The vacuum stability of the various structures is evaluated. (Author)
