Elastic Behavior of γ-Li3N under Pressure

M. A. Hossain, A. K. M. A. Islam


The elastic properties of gamma-Li3N have been studied for the first time by first-principles method. Three independent elastic constants, aggregate elastic moduli (B, G, E), Poissons ratio and Debye temperature are calculated as a function of pressure from 37.12 (beta to gamma transition value)  to 200 GPa and the implications of the results are discussed.

Keywords: Li3N; Gamma-phase; Elastic properties; Debye temperature.
