X-ray reflectivity measurements of liquid surfaces were demonstrated using a recently developed liquid interface reflectometer at SPring-8. The reflectometer, equipped with a two-dimensional hybrid pixel array detector (PILATUS), achieved x-ray reflectivity towards 10-9 with an integration time at each angle of only 1 sec, offering enormous potential for rapid measurements. Time-resolved measurements at a time resolution of 1 min were performed on the adsorption process of a globular protein lysozyme on a water/air interface.
