The mid-infrared spin-wave spectrum of antiferromagnetic was determined by infrared transmission and reflection measurements ( at K. Excitation of single magnons of the optical branch was observed at meV. Two further peaks at meV () and meV () both belong to the two-magnon spectrum. Linear spin-wave theory is in good agreement with the measured two-magnon spectrum, and allows to determine the exchange constant J to be about meV, whereas the intrabilayer coupling J12 is approximately 0.5J.
