The Neel temperature of the new frustrated family of SrRE2O4 (RE = rare earth) compounds is yet limited to 0.9 K, which more or less hampers a complete understanding of the magnetic frustrations and spin interactions. Here we report on a new frustrated member to the family, SrTb2O4 with a record TN = 4.28(2) K, and an experimental study of the magnetic interacting and frustrating mechanisms by polarized and unpolarized neutron scattering. The compound of SrTb2O4 displays an incommensurate… Expand
