The sequence of phase transitions P3m1 -> C2/m -> C2/c in K3Na(CrO4)2 crystals and existence of the intermediate phase have been studied both experimentally by the Raman scattering method and theoretically by programs and retrieval tools of the Bilbao Crystallographic Server. A zone-edge soft mode responsible for a transition from the intermediate C2/m to a low-symmetry C2/c phase at T=210 K has been discovered experimentally for the first time. The symmetry of the soft mode has been established theoretically to be A2+. The temperature interval of the intermediate monoclinic phase has been determined to be 239-210 K. This work was supported by a grant from the Department of Physical Sciences of the Russian Academy of Sciences within the framework of the program "Basic Optical Spectroscopy and Its Applications."
