Title: Phenomenological explanation of elastic anomalies in superlattices

Abstract

The experimental fact that measured elastic and structural properties of superlattices are strongly correlated can be understood on the basis of a simple model based on the packing of hard spheres. The model is consistent with features of many models that have been proposed to explain the supermodulus effect; but contrary to previous explanations, it allows predictions for a given pair of constitutents to be made. For an arbitrary pair of elements, it predicts the existence or non-existence of an elastic anomaly, and a rough estimate of its magnitude.
