Microscopic theory of second-order and third-order elastic constants for an NaCl crystal

  • O. V. Kukin


Relations between the second-order and third-order symmetry-independent elastic constants and the energy of interatomic interactions dependent on the mutual arrangement of pairs and triplets of atoms are obtained for crystals belonging to the crystal class O h. The derived relations and experimental data on the elastic constants are used to calculate four third-order elastic constants and the temperature dependence of the elastic anisotropy factor a(T) for an NaCl crystal. The calculated dependence a(T) is in qualitative agreement with the experimental dependence a exp(T).
