In this work we investigate the magnetic field dependence of A(g) octahedra rotation (tilt) and B(2g) symmetric stretching modes frequencies at different temperatures. Our field-dependent Raman investigation at 10 K is interpreted by an ionic displacive nature of the magnetically-induced ferroelectric phase transition. The increasing frequency of the A(g) tilt mode with magnetic field gives evidence for the increase of the MnO(6) tilt angle, which in turn leads to a weakening of the ferromagnetic exchange interaction, yielding the necessary conditions for the onset of ferroelectricity on the basis of the inverse Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction. The frequency change of the B(2g) symmetric stretching mode at the ferroelectric phase transition enables one to estimate the shift of oxygen ion positions and the corresponding spontaneous polarization of 480 μC m(-2) in magnitude, which is of the same order as earlier reported values in single crystals.
