Mn1.4PtSn belongs to the family of tetragonally-distorted Heulser compounds where non-collinear magnetic order is expected to appear as a result of competition between Heisenberg exchange interaction, the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction and uniaxial magnetocrystalline anisotropy. Recent examples include the canted antiferromagnetic order in the compound Mn2RhSn and the lattice of antiskyrmions in Mn1.4Pt0.9Pd0.1Sn, which is a structural analogue of the discussed compound [1,2]. Small-angle neutron scattering experiments on an oriented single crystal of Mn1.4PtSn revealed highly-anisotropic nature of the spatial spin-spin correlation function in the range of 100 nm. The latter might be associated with a long-range fluctuation of the ferromagnetic order along one of the principal in-plane crystallographic directions. The scattering patterns show clear dependence on the temperature and the applied magnetic field.
