  • We employ an optical pump-probe technique to study coherent phonon oscillations in Ca$_2$RuO$_4$. We find that oscillation-amplitude of an $A_g$ symmetric phonon mode is strongly suppressed at 260 K, a putative transition point of orbital ordering. The oscillation also shows a gradual but huge change in its $phase$, such that the oscillation even flips over with a 180$^{\circ}$ change across the temperature. Density functional theory calculations indicate that the $A_g$ phonon has an eigenmode… CONTINUE READING
