D3OFe3(SO4)(2)(OD)(6) is a model example of an S = 5/2 Kagome anti-ferromagnet that exhibits unconventional two-dimensional spin-glass properties. We report quasi-elastic neutron-scattering data on D3OFe3(SO4)(2)(OD)(6) derived from three-directional neutron spin-polarization analysis in combination with time-of-flight analysis (DeltaE approximate to 1 meV). At 1.5 K, within the time window of the experiment, only 45% of the total elastic magnetic moment is frozen - a broad magnetic response in Q is still observed at temperatures in excess of ten times the spin-glass freezing temperature. The dc-magnetization measurements on H3OFe3-xAlx(SO4)(2)(OD)(6) show that dilution of the magnetic lattice with Al3+ disrupts the spin-glass state. Mossbauer measurements indicate that the Al replaces the Fe ions on the magnetic sites of the Kagome lattice, giving rise to two distinct iron sites with equal occupation levels but different hyperfine fields.
