Static and dynamic magnetic susceptibilities of lightly-doped Bi2.4Sr1.6CuO6+y were studied by a SQUID magnetometer and triple-axis neutron spectrometers. The static magnetic susceptibility showed a difference between field-cooled and zero-field-cooled processes at low temperature, showing a spin-glass-like behavior. The irreversibility temperature was determined to be Tsg ∼3 K, which is slightly lower than Tsg of 5–6 K in the lightly-doped LSCO with similar hole concentration. Furthermore, we have confirmed the existence of low-energy spin fluctuations with the spatially modulated spin correlation along diagonal to Cu–O bond direction in the Bi2201 system for the first time. This observation is consistent with the previously reported result for the spin-glass phase of LSCO. The magnetic intensity χ′′(ω) measured at the energy transfer of 1 meV drastically developed below 100 K, while that at 6 meV shows a gradual increase below 200 K with decreasing the temperature. Although the spin fluctuations slow down upon cooling, no well defined static order was detected even at 6 K. Our results suggest that the diagonal incommensurate spin correlation is common in the spin-glass phase of single layer cuprate-oxide. The development of static component, however, is different between the Bi2201 and LSCO systems and would be affected by the interlayer coupling and/or the cation disorder on the A-site.
