Magnetoelastic properties of a single crystal of CeP have been investigated by magnetostriction and thermal expansion measurements. The longitudinal and transverse magnetostriction with the field along the [001] direction show an abrupt decrease in length following the appearance of the ferromagnetically ordered planes with the T8 Ce moments. Moreover, iso-field thermal expansion along both directions show a large increase of the length at the temperature where the ferromagnetic-paramagnetic transition of the Γ8 Ce moments takes place. Such large length changes can be understood by the p-f mixing effect which has been used successfully to explain the magnetic phase diagram of CeP.
