Title: Single-crystal elastic properties of aluminum oxynitride (AlON) from brillouin scattering

Abstract

The Brillouin light-scattering technique was used to determine experimentally the three independent elastic constants of cubic aluminum oxynitride at the ambient condition. They are C11=334.8(±1.8) GPa, C12=164.4(± 1.2) GPa, and C44=178.6(± 1.1) GPa. Its bulk modulus is 221.2 GPa. The magnitude of Zener anisotropic ratio is 2.1 similar to other spinels. Here, the anisotropic nature of the material is shown by a large variation in the Young’s modulus and Poisson’s ratio with crystallographic directions. The material was found to be auxetic in certain orientations.
