Nuclear quadrupole resonance spectroscopy (around 30 MHz) on the chain site Cu(1) nuclei in oxygen deficient YBa2(Cu1-xFex)3O6 doped with different amounts of57Fe (x≤0.01) reveal an onset of magnetic order at low temperatures represented by a symmetrical doublet contribution to the nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR) spectrum. The onset temperature TN2 depends on the concentration of Fe reaching 130 K for x=0.01. The splitting for x=0.01 at 100 K corresponds to a net internal field of 0.09 T with a distribution of ≈0.08 T representing about 70 percent of the Cu(1) nuclei.57Fe and57Co Mössbauer spectroscopy at 4.2 K with and without an external magnetic field of 5 T revealed that below x=0.00015 Fe spins are decoupled from the Cu(2) moments in the antiferromagnetic state. Results are interpreted in terms of the magnetic model structure suggested by Kadowaki et al. [1].
