A theory of propagation of neutron waves in multilayer magnetic and nonmagnetic systems is presented. It is shown how a system forms the wave function of a neutron, how the wave function formed can be controlled, and how this function can be used to investigate materials. The results of experimental investigations of the neutron reflection from multilayer systems with simultaneous measurement of different types of secondary radiation are reported.
