Figures 11 (a) and (b) illustrate the wave number vs. 15O5 sample at different fixed temperatures close to the region of the magnetic (~ 86 K) and dielectric (~ 120 K) transition temperatures, respectively. In the region of magnetic transition (~ 86 K), the Raman spectra are collected at 80, 83, 86, 90 and 95 K as shown in figure 11(a). Similarly, in the region of dielectric transition (~ 120 K), these are collected at 110, 115, 120, 130 and 140 K. We have observed most of the reported Raman modes  in our data, except of a few whose intensities are either very low or exist at wave numbers < 100 cm−1.

To understand this behaviour, one 28 Ferroics and Multiferroics has to consider the various exchange interactions in BiMn2−xTixO5. In the complex magnetic structure of BiMn2O5, apparently five nearest neighbour interactions are present [38, 39, 42, 59–61], namely J1 (AFM: Mn4+ - O2 - Mn4+), J2 (AFM: Mn4+ - O3- Mn4+), J3 (FM: Mn4+ - O4 - Mn3+), J4 (AFM: Mn4+ - O3 - Mn3+) and J5 (AFM: Mn3+ - O1 - Mn3+). 30 compound, may be attributed to an increase in J3 interaction (predominantly of FM in nature).
