[Neutron] effect of thickness on HOPG reflectivity for thermal neutrons

Dear All,
Does anyone know of measured curves of
neutron reflectivity vs. crystal thickness
for pyrolytic graphite as used for neutron monochromators for thermal 
neutrons (e.g. ZYA quality HOPG).

Is there an optimum thickness for maximum flux of e.g. 2.4 Angstrom neutrons ?

Even unpublished results would be of interest.
