The double perovskite YBaMn2O6 exhibited complex structural, magnetic, and charge/orbital ordering phase transitions. In this paper, we investigated the correlation between the temperature-dependent optical response and complex phase transitions of YBaMn2O6 single crystals through spectroscopic ellipsometry and Raman scattering spectroscopy. The room temperature optical absorption spectrum of YBaMn2O6 revealed three bands of approximately 1.50, 4.05, and 5.49 eV. The lowest optical absorption band was assigned to on-site d-d transitions in Mn ions, whereas the other two optical features were assigned to charge-transfer transitions between the 2p states of O and 3d states of Mn. The room temperature Raman scattering spectrum revealed 25 phonon modes. Notably, the MnO6 octahedral tilting and bending modes between 360 and 440 cm-1 increased in intensity at temperatures <200 K. Furthermore, several new phonon peaks appeared at temperatures <200 K, which were associated with charge ordering. Additionally, the magnetic order-induced changes were observed in the breathing modes, with reduced intensity of the 620 cm-1 and a substantial enhancement of the 644 cm-1 phonon peaks. The Jahn-Teller mode at approximately 496 cm-1 exhibited strong hardening at temperatures <200 K, which indicated a linear correlation with the square of the magnetic susceptibility and thus revealed the occurrence of spin-phonon coupling. Anomalies in the phonon frequency, line width, and intensity observed near the phase transition temperatures highlighted the importance of lattice-charge-spin interactions in YBaMn2O6.
