Dilution on the B-site with Ir or Rh can lead to the enhancement of ferromagnetic couplings in layered manganites. We report a μSR study of the spin dynamics of the layered manganites as a function of the dilution. We have characterized the static magnetic behavior using SQUID magnetic measurements and used muon spin relaxation spectroscopy to provide evidence for short-range ferromagnetic correlations. Furthermore, the effect of dilution on the critical dynamics in this two-dimensional spin system is reported and related to the dynamics above and below the critical percolation threshold.
