Magnetization, specific heat, magnetic resonance and neutron diffraction measurements are used to study the magnetic structure of KFe(MoO4)2. This stacked triangular antiferromagnet (TN=2.5 K) demonstrates an unusual breaking of the spin system into two intercalated and almost independent 2D subsystems. One is a collinear antiferromagnet with a simple spin-flop behavior. The other is a spiral magnet. The spin structure may be explained assuming two types of inequivalent magnetic planes with… Expand
