We report an Inelastic Neutron Scattering (INS) study of the fully deuterated molecular compound (). Due to geometrical frustration, the essential physics at low temperatures of the cluster containing 15 coupled (S=1/2) is determined by three weakly coupled spin-(1/2) on a triangle. The INS spectra at low energy allow us to directly determine the effective exchange coupling meV within the triangle and the gap meV between the two spin-(1/2) doublets of the ground state. Results are discussed in terms of deviations from trigonal symmetry and Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya (DM) interactions.
