Abstract:

Adiabatic elastic constants of certain cubic crystals - lithium fluoride, sodium fluoride, calcium fluoride, strontium fluoride, and barium fluoride - are determined over the room-to-liquid-nitrogen-temperature range. Elastic-anisotropy factors, adiabatic compressibilities, and thermoelastances are evaluated from the elastic-constant data. Results are compared with those of other investigators.
