A neutron spin-echo spectrometer based on spin precessors in the form of magnetic layered nanostructures is described. A model of a spin-echo spectrometer is developed on beam no. 9 in the IBR-2 reactor. In this model, spin precession occurs during motion of neutrons in a magnetic field and their double reflection from Al(30 nm)/Fe(15 nm)/Al(120 nm)/Cu(150 nm) magnetic layered structures. The obtained spectrometer parameters make it possible to investigate excitations in films with a wave vector oriented along the neutron beam direction in the range from 10-3 to 10-1 Å-1 and perpendicularly to the beam in the range from 10 -4 to 10-5 Å-1.
