Strain, magnetization, dielectric relaxation, and unpolarized and polarized neutron diffraction measurements were performed to study the magnetic and structural properties of spinel Co1-xV2+xO4. The strain measurement indicates that, upon cooling, ΔL/L in the order of ∼10-4 starts increasing below TC, becomes maximum at Tmax, and then decreases and changes its sign at T∗. Neutron measurements indicate that a collinear ferrimagnetic order develops below TC and upon further cooling noncollinear ferrimagnetic ordering occurs below Tmax. At low temperatures, the dielectric constant exhibits a frequency dependence, indicating slow dynamics. These results indicate the existence of an orbital glassy state at low temperatures in this nearly metallic frustrated magnet.
