Neutrons sent at grazing incidence on imperfect multilayers of polymers are scattered both out of and within the plane of reflection. In the latter geometry the scattered intensity is highly structured in two series of ridges, whose loci can be labeled in terms of the neutron momenta. Intersecting ridges show evidence of mode coupling. Similar topology is expected for x-ray scattering.
