Destrade, M. (2003). Elastic interface acoustic waves in twinned crystals. International Journal of Solids and Structures, 40(26), 7375-7383.
A new type of interface acoustic waves (IAW) is presented, for single-crystal orthotropic twins bonded symmetrically along a plane containing only one common crystallographic axis. The effective boundary conditions show that the waves are linearly polarized at the interface, either transversally or longitudinally. Then the secular equation is obtained in full analytical form using new relationships for the displacement-traction quadrivector at the interface. For gallium arsenide and for silicon, it is found that the IAWs with transverse (resp. longitudinal) polarization at the interface are of the Stoneley (resp. leaky) type.
