Electric and magnetic measurements were carried out on a single crystalline sample of triangular lattice system LuFeCoO4. LuFeCoO4 has a relaxor-like behavior in the dielectric constant, which corresponds with the existence of the polar nanoregion (PNR). A magnetic correlation length along c-plane was estimated to be nano-size by our neutron diffraction measurements, and an anomalous magnetization was found below 200 K. Similar electric and magnetic behaviors were also observed in relaxor ferroelectrics 2/3BiFeO 3-1/3BaTiO3, suggesting that the relaxor ferroelectrics having magnetic ions show commonly a nanomagnetism induced by PNRs.
