In this work, we report low-temperature Raman spectroscopic measurement to investigate the temperature dependence of phonons and magnetic as well as electronic excitations in Formula Presented for Formula Presented, 0.02, 0.035, 0.05, and 0.10. A strong spin-phonon coupling induced phonon renormalization is observed below magnetic transition temperature Formula Presented for samples with Formula Presented. An underlying broad continuum attributed to pronounced spin-spin correlations is observed below Formula Presented for pure Formula Presented. Significant phonon anomalies at lower temperatures, much below Formula Presented, for Formula Presented and 0.02, are observed and are attributed to a possible crossover into the Weyl semimetal state. Most interestingly, we observe clear signatures of quadratic band touching in Formula Presented and 0.10 systems in terms of a broad electronic continuum at low temperatures analyzed using the Raman susceptibility for a non-Fermi liquid, corroborating the inference from recent transport measurements.
