Magnetic and dielectric measurements confirm the multiferroic nature of LuMnO3. Raman spectra of LuMnO3 have been recorded in the 77-800 K range covering both the antiferromagnetic transition at 90 K and the ferroelectric-paraelectric transition at 750 K. The changes in the phonon modes frequencies and band-widths indicate the presence of phonon-spin coupling in the antiferromagnetically ordered phase. The ferroelectric-paraelectric transition is accompanied by the broadening and disappearance of many of the phonon modes. Some of the phonon modes also show anomalies at the ferroelectric transition.
