Phonon spectra of ferromagnetic CaB6 and CaB2C 2 have been investigated by Raman scattering. In CaB6, a doublet spectrum has been observed for Eg phonon and is understood by an anisotropic charge distribution at B6. For ferromagnetism, the magnetic moment of CaB6 is attributed to the B6 octahedron, since the intensity of the phonon peaks of A1g and E1g changes in the vicinity of ferromagnetic Curie temperature. These results of CaB6 are explained by electron condensate model. In CaB2C2 two phonon modes have been observed, but the spectra at higher temperature were not measured due to sample damage by laser. For both ferromagnetic crystals, the ionic interaction between Ca and B/C is smaller than that between rare earth ion and B/C in the isomorphous crystals. This result might be important to clarify a ferromagnetic interaction.
