Antiferromagnetic resonance (AFMR) experiments were performed in single crystals for Sr concentrations . A quasi-optical technique was employed in a frequency range and for temperatures . Two AFMR modes, a quasi-ferromagnetic (F) and a quasi-antiferromagnetic (AF) mode, were observed for temperatures below . The resonance frequency of the F-mode reveals a strong concentration dependence, while the AF-mode frequency only slightly decreases on increasing x. The observed concentration dependencies, as well as the excitation conditions for both modes, can be explained using a simple two-sublattice model. These experiments provide direct evidence in favour of a canted antiferromagnetic (CA) structure for x < 0.1 and low temperatures and cannot be interpreted in terms of a phase separation of ferromagnetic droplets in an antiferromagnetic matrix.
