Measurements of polarized-neutron reflection from magnetic films placed in a static magnetic field and in an oscillating magnetic field perpendicular to it are described. The process of diffuse neutron scattering involving energy transfer from a RF electromagnetic field to neutrons has been studied. Neutron magnetic resonance has been detected, and splitting of the polarized beam of neutrons reflected from a film has been discovered.
