Title: Spin-phonon coupling in BaFe{sub 12}O{sub 19} M-type hexaferrite

The spin-phonon coupling in magnetic materials is due to the modulation of the exchange integral by lattice vibrations. BaFe{sub 12}O{sub 19} M-type hexaferrite, which is the most used magnetic material as permanent magnet, transforms into ferrimagnet at high temperatures, but no spin-phonon coupling was previously observed at this transition. In this letter, we investigated the temperature-dependent Raman spectra of polycrystalline BaFe{sub 12}O{sub 19} M-type hexaferrite from room temperature up to 780 K to probe spin-phonon coupling at the ferrimagnetic transition. An anomaly was observed in the position of the phonon attributed to the Fe{sup (4)}O{sub 6}, Fe{sup (5)}O{sub 6}, and Fe{sup (1)}O{sub 6} octahedra, evidencing the presence of a spin-phonon coupling in BaM in the ferrimagnetic transition at 720 K. The results also confirmed the spin-phonon coupling is different for each phonon even when they couple with the same spin configuration.
