Neutron scattering studies on CeTSn (T = Ni, Pd) are reported. From the single-crystal diffraction experiment, the magnetic structure of CePdSn below TN was found to be an incommensurate one with a propagation vector of [0, 0.473, 0] and a magnetic moment of about 1 μB. Well-defined crystal field excitations were observed for CePdSn at 17.4 and 25.8 meV. On the other hand, the magnetic inelastic responce of CeNiSn is rather structureless like a quasi-elastic scattering with a large linewidth.
