    Magnetic structure of the double perovskite Sr2CuWO6 was determined from neutron powder diffraction data. At 3 K the material is magnetically long-range ordered into a collinear antiferromagnetic structure described by a propagation vector k = (0, 1/2, 1/2) with the CuII moments of 0.57(1) μB parallel to the a-axis. The result is in agreement with our previous prediction (Vasala et al 2014 Phys. Rev. B 89 134419) based on electronic structure calculations, showing that the three-dimensional magnetic long-range order is caused by relatively strong antiferromagnetic next-nearest-neighbor interactions.
