The phase transition properties of A3Fe2(PO4)3 (A = Li, Na) were studied by Raman spectroscopy. Several Raman bands change continuously in 25–400 °C temperature range, indicating a phase transition from the γ, β to the α-phase occurring at this range of temperature. Bands caused by vibrations of phosphate anion and different ions have been found. The spectra analysis reveals that the modes, located at low frequency range 100–400 cm−1, near 500 cm−1 at room temperature, are the most thermo-sensitive. In addition, the modes corresponding to bond valence stretching of (PO4) unit in the frequency region 970–1200 cm−1 show also evolution with temperature but less sensitive than the above ones. It is observed that phosphate groups show some ordering with temperature. According to our Raman study, we can state that each of the compounds LiFeP and NaFeP shows two reversible phase transformations in the temperature range studied.
