The complete Raman spectra of a single crystal of LiNiPO4 for a wide temperature range are reported. Of the 36 Raman-active modes predicted by group theory, 33 have been detected. The spectra are successfully analyzed in terms of internal modes of the (PO4)3− group and external modes. Multiphonon Raman scattering is also discussed. Low-frequency lines, observed in the antiferromagnetic phase, are assigned to magnon scattering and are discussed briefly.
