Abstract We demonstrate that x-ray reflection standing wave fluorescence spectroscopy is a highly sensitive technique for the determination of the distribution of metal nanoparticles inside polymer thin films. We investigate both the depth profile and the in-plane spatial correlation of gold nanoparticles in an asymmetric polystyrene-{ital b}-poly(2-vinylpyridine) block copolymer film. These copolymer films self-assemble into alternating, nanometer-sized domains that are, upon annealing, selectively decorated by thermally evaporated metal nanoparticles to form metal/polymer composites. {copyright} {ital 1999 American Institute of Physics.}
