The structural modifications associated with magnetic and multiferroic transitions in FeVO4 polycrystalline samples have been investigated using complementary techniques, including synchrotron radiation x-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman spectroscopy, and x-ray absorption fine-structure spectroscopy (XAFS). Temperature-dependent measurements reveal unveiled details of the local structural modifications intimately related to the spin-lattice coupling. This study is particularly focused on illuminating the changes occurring crossing the two distinct antiferromagnetic transition temperatures at 21.8 (±0.5) K (TN1) and 15.6 (±0.5) K (TN2) in the FeVO4. The combined analysis of XRD, Raman, and XAFS spectra rules out major modification of the Fe valence state or the average Fe-On coordination geometry related to the transitions at TN1 and TN2. On the contrary, structural modifications are revealed in the Fe-Fe, Fe-V, and Fe-O-V path distances as a function of temperature, attributable to changes in the tilting and rotation of Fe-On and/or V-On polyhedra, likely representing the microstructural fingerprint of changes in the super-super-exchange interactions along the Fe3+-O-V5+-O-Fe3+ pathway. © 2024 American Physical Society.
