The magnetic excitations in two-dimensional percolating Ising-type antiferromagnets, Rb2CocMg1-cF4 (c = 0.60 and 0.70), were studied by pulsed-neutron scattering. The peaks due to Ising-cluster excitations were clearly observed far above TN. Their intensities exist even at 5TN and 2TN for c = 0-60 and 0.70, respectively. This reveals that the characteristic time of the spin correlation in percolating networks is much longer than that of neutrons traveling through the systems, and, therefore, the spins can provide molecular fields at the neighboring sites, even in paramagnetic regions.
