Abstract: The high-T "orthorhombic-cubic" Jahn-Teller (JT) transition of a polycrystalline sample of LaMnO3 is studied by Raman scattering. A CaMnO3 ceramic sample is used as a reference compound. Dramatic braodening of the LaMnO3 Raman modes are observed as T approaches the JT transition temperature (T-JT) from below. The strong T dependence of the phonon linewidth suggests that considerable lattice disorder is already present at temperatures well below T-JT. Our results indicate that the JT transition in LaMnO3 is of order-disorder type and is driven by thermally activated e(g) orbital disorder of the Mn3+ ion in the MnO6 octahedra.
