The crystallographic and magnetic structures of Ca3Mn 2O7 Ruddlesden-Popper phase have been determined by a combination of neutron and synchrotron x-ray diffraction. Two-phase behaviour observed at room temperature is attributed to an incomplete structural phase transition. The magnetic structure was solved in the Cm′c2′1 Shubnikov group with dominant G-type antiferromagnetic order in the perovskite bilayers. The temperature evolution of the structural and magnetic parameters is presented.
