Raman Investigation of the Layered Manganese Perovskite La1.2 Sr1.8 Mn207

We report the results of a detailed polarization and temperature dependence study of the Raman scattering from La1.2Sr1.8Mn207. The Raman spectra reveal three general spectral features. First, there are sharp peaks due to long-wavelength optic phonons. Phonons, attributed to the distortion of the MNO6 octahedra, reveal an anomalous behavior which correlates with the transition from a paramagnetic-insulating (Pl) to a ferromagnetic-metallic (FM) phase at a critical temperature Tc. Second, there is an electronic continuum that is suppressed for w <500 cm-1 at T<
