We have measured the two magnon Raman scattering spectrum of magnetic La2CuO4 at pressures of up to 100 kbar. Analysis of the moments of the two magnon line shape indicates that the renormalization parameters resulting from spin fluctuations are essentially pressure independent in this pressure range. Our results provide the first direct determination of the pressure dependence of the in plane exchange coupling constant J. The pressure dependence of J is compared with that of the Néel temperature and discussed in the context of recent theories for quasi two dimensional magnetic systems. © 1991, American Institute of Physics.
