The influence of temperature on the far-infrared (FIR) spectrum of polycrystalline Ag2CdI4 has been investigated by Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy measurements. The FIR phonon spectrum has also been calculated by means of quantum mechanical density functional theory (DFT). The comparison of calculated and measured spectra allows the fast and reliable assignment of the measured phonon modes, and thus clarifies the mode splitting character obtained at elevated temperatures.
