We have proposed a real-time method of neutron reflectometry. The magnetic state of the Ta/V/FM/Nb/Si ferromagnetic–superconducting system has been analyzed. Relaxation of the inhomogeneous magnetic state with a characteristic time of several hours, which depends on the magnetic field magnitude and temperature, has been observed. The relaxation of the domain structure has changed upon a transition of the V and Nb layers to the superconducting state. It has been concluded that real-time reflectometry data for polarized neutrons are important for determining the origin of magnetism in ferromagnetic–superconducting layered structures.
