The low-energy magnetic excitations (HBAR omega less than or equal to 2 meV) of polycrystalline samples of Nd2-xCexCuO4 with x = 0, 0.1 and 0.15 have been measured with high resolution inelastic neutron scattering using time-of-flight technique at temperatures below 0.3 K. All observed scattering originates from transitions within the ground state doublet of Nd3+. For Nd2CuO4 the response is inelastic, and shows at least three different modes, of which one is almost dispersionless. For x = 0.1 the excitation spectrum shifts towards lower energies, but the main features of the undoped compound are still visible, whereas for x = 0.15 the response is mainly quasi-elastic but remains localised in Q-space around the first magnetic Bragg point (0.5 0.5 1). A comparison with data obtained on a triple-axis-spectrometer on single crystals with x = 0.0 and x = 0.15 reveals that the response of the doped sample in the [0 0 1] direction is still inelastic.
