The magnetic properties of GdCu2 have been investigated. Neutron scattering experiments have been performed on powder and single-crystal samples to determine the magnetic structure. A non-collinear, cycloidal propagation fits best to the experimental data. The results are discussed in the framework of a mean field model. Low-field magnetization measurements indicate an anisotropy which is in agreement with the proposed magnetic structure.
