Common materials in reflectometry experiments along with densities.

By name:

air, water, heavywater, lightheavywater, silicon, sapphire, gold
permalloy

By formula:

H2O, D2O, DHO, Si, Al2O3, Au, Ni8Fe2

If you want to adjust the density you will need to make your own copy of these materials. For example, for permalloy:

>>> NiFe=Material(permalloy.formula,density=permalloy.bulk_density)
>>> NiFe.density.pmp(10)  # Let density vary by 10% from bulk value
Parameter(permalloy density)
