    Abstract

    A neutron scattering study of the magnetic order in the randomly mixed two-dimensional ferromagnet-antiferromagnet Rb2Cu1-xCoxF4 has been performed. For x = 0.037, 0.083, and 0.88, the system enters an oblique ferromagnetic phase, an axial ferromagnetic, and an axial antiferromagnetic phase, respectively. The critical behaviour is concluded to be dominated by strong disorder as a result of competing exchange interactions.
