We discuss the full spin-wave spectrum of the noncollinear antiferromagnet Mn3Ge obtained using neutron time-of-flight and triple-axis spectroscopy. The sublattice of magnetic ions in hexagonal Mn3Ge can be viewed as two adjacent kagome layers stacked along the crystallographic [001] axis. Below TN of 370 K the Mn atoms form the coplanar triangular 120 antiferromagnetic (AFM) order. Our measurements revealed a magnon mode with a spin-wave gap of 5 meV and a very steep anisotropic dispersion. The obtained spectra allows one to build an effective model of magnetic interactions in the system. We found two coupled magnon-phonon excitations seen in the vicinity of the zone center on the energies of 14 meV and 17.5 meV. We argue that this mixed excitations represent a strong magneto-elastic coupling in Mn3Ge.
