Abstract

A recent high pressure experiment on LaAlO3 has revealed that the compound is an exception for the "general rule" of displacive phase transition associated with zone-boundary phonons. In the present study, the experimental result is successfully confirmed by first principles calculations. The pressure dependence of phonon frequencies as well as the phase transition pressure is quantitatively well reproduced. We found that the behavior is not peculiar to LaAlO3 but rather ubiquitous. RAlO 3 (R = La, Nd, Sm, and Gd) and LaGaO3 can be classified in the same group.
