We report neutron diffraction studies of zinc-blende strained MnSe/ZnSe superlattices. Such systems are examples of a fcc Heisenberg antiferromagnet of the third kind. The results show clearly long-range order in the MnSe layer plane, and no magnetic coupling across the passive layers. The strain affects the relative domain population. Measurements of the diffracted intensity versus T show that the AF phase transition in the MnSe layers is of second order with TM = 107 ± 5 K.
