- Surface Brillouin scattering (SBS) has been used to study the thermally induced surface vibrations (phonons) and thereby obtain the elastic properties of the nickel-based superalloy CMSX-4. SBS spectra have been acquired for a range of wavevector directions in the (001) surface in the single-crystal specimen to determine the angular variation of SAWvelocities and the nature of the various excitations. Rayleigh and pseudo-surface acoustic waves as well as the details of the Lamb shoulder are studied, and the elastic constants and engineering moduli are determined using different, but self-consistent, methods at ambient and high temperatures. Calculations of the SBS spectra using surface Green function methods are in good agreement with the experimental results.
