The polarized Raman spectra of orthorhombic RMnO3 series (R=La,Pr,Nd,Sm,Eu,Gd,Tb,Dy,Ho,Y) were studied at room temperature. The variation of phonon frequencies with R ionic radius rR as a whole confirms the commonly accepted Raman line assignments with two noticeable exceptions: (1) with decreasing rR the stretching Ag(1) and bending Ag(3) modes strongly mix for R=Sm to Tb, while for further decrease or rR (R=Dy,Ho,Y) the Ag(3) mode is observed at higher frequency than Ag(1) mode; (2) similar…

Spin-phonon coupling in multiferroic RCrO3 (R-Y, Lu, Gd, Eu, Sm): A Raman study

Raman study on a select few orthochromites, RCrO3 (R = Y, Lu, Gd, Eu and Sm), shows that the phonon behavior at TN in compounds with magnetic R-ion (Gd and Sm) is remarkably different from that of

Frequency dependence of the quasi-soft Raman-active modes in rotationally distorted R3+B3+O3 perovskites (R3+—rare earth, B3+=Al, Sc, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Ga)

It was found that the relation ω = ϰα is satisfied in a good approximation for each RBO(3) family with fixed B atom, despite the different spatial tilt orientations for compounds of the same series with either orthorhombic Pnma or rhombohedral R ̅3c structure.

Evaluation of the strains in charge-ordered Pr1−xCaxMnO3 thin films using Raman spectroscopy

Thin films of Pr1−xCaxMnO3 (x=0.5,0.6) deposited on LaAlO3 and SrTiO3 substrates have been studied by Raman spectroscopy at low temperatures in order to investigate the effect of strains from the Ca

Raman scattering of perovskite DyScO3 and GdScO3 single crystals

The reported spectral signature together with the mode assignment set the basis for the use of Raman scattering for the investigation of rare earth scandates and it is shown that a meaningful phonon Raman analysis of GdScO(3) samples can be done by using a 633 nm excitation.

Raman scattering studies of hexagonal rare-earth RMnO3 (R = Tb, Dy, Ho, Er) thin films

We have studied the rare-earth (R) dependence of the phonon and magnon scattering in hexagonal RMnO3 (R = Tb, Dy, Ho, Er) thin films using Raman scattering spectroscopy. We found, as the ionic radius

Magnetically-induced lattice distortions and ferroelectricity in magnetoelectric GdMnO3

The increasing frequency of the A(g) tilt mode with magnetic field gives evidence for the increase of the MnO(6) tilt angle, which leads to a weakening of the ferromagnetic exchange interaction, yielding the necessary conditions for the onset of ferroelectricity on the basis of the inverse Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction.

Lattice dynamics of Eu1-xYxMnO3 (0 ≤ x ≤ 0.5)

AbstractA systematic and detailed study of Raman and infrared active lattice excitations in the orthorhombic multiferroic manganite Eu1−xYxMnO3 (0 ≤ x ≤ 0.5) was carried out at room temperature. For

Zone center phonons of the orthorhombic RMnO3(R = Pr, Eu, Tb, Dy, Ho) perovskites

A short range force constant model (SRFCM) has been applied for the first time to investigate the phonons in RMnO3 (R = Pr, Eu, Tb, Dy, Ho) perovskites in their orthorhombic phase. The calculations

Spin-phonon coupling in multiferroic manganites RMnO3: comparison of pure (R = Eu, Gd, Tb) and substituted (R = Eu1-xYx) compounds

Abstract For rare-earth manganite RMnO3 compounds spin-phonon coupling manifests itself as a phonon softening in the temperature range of the magnetically ordered phases. Within this class of
