Inelastic neutron scattering experiments on an intermetallic compound, MnP, were performed by using a chopper spectrometer as well as triple axis spectrometers. Spin waves were observed in the ferromagnetic phase in the entire Brillouin zone along the a*- and b*-axes. The observed dispersion relations of spin waves were well described by an isotropic Heisenberg interaction adding a single ion anisotropy with two sub-lattices.
