We report the study of lattice effects in the Mott insulator HoVO3 performed by means of linear thermal expansion on a single crystal in the temperature range 10–290 K. The holmium orthovanadate HoVO3 reveals gradual orbital ordering (OO) below TOO=200 K and orders antiferromagnetically at TN=113 K. A first-order structural phase transition takes place at TS∼38 K, which is probably accompanied by change of the OO type and hence the type of antiferromagnetic spin ordering.
