Title: Elastic Anisotropy Modulates Phonon Focusing
Abstract: 
Theoretical calculations of the three dimensional slowness surfaces give insights into the mixing of longitudinal and transverse modes and show the origin of the phonon caustics. The phonon focusing due to the elastically anisotropy, and the phonon phase and group velocities are explained. In general, the propagation of elastic waves in crystals is strongly affected by the elastic anisotropy of the lattice.The topological structures of three dimensional slowness surfaces show the origin of the phonon caustics due to the fact that the phonon phase velocity and group velocity are generally not collinear in elastically anisotropic crystals. The comparative investigations between anisotropy and slowness show that the propagation of elastic wave is affected by the elastic anisotropy of the lattice, and the phonon caustics “walk along” the extreme direction of elastic anisotropy.
