Abstract

The polarized Raman spectra of (010)- and (001)-oriented epitaxial thin films of (Formula presented) (space group (Formula presented) (Formula presented)) are measured between 5 and 300 K. The Raman lines at 123, 225, 252, 291, 361, 390–393, and (Formula presented) are assigned to definite modes of (Formula presented) or (Formula presented) symmetry based of their polarization selection rules, the comparison with the results of lattice dynamical calculations (LDC), and accounting for the correlation between the Γ-point phonons in the (Formula presented) structure and the Γ-, (Formula presented)-, (Formula presented)-, and (Formula presented)-point phonon modes in the parent (Formula presented) structure. The pronounced anomalies of the Raman phonon parameters near the ferromagnetic transition (Formula presented) are discussed in terms of enhanced spin-phonon coupling and reorganization of the electronic states in the vicinity of (Formula presented).
