The complete elastictensors of SmScO3 and NdScO3 were measured using resonant ultrasound spectroscopy (RUS) in combination with ab-initio calculations. Measurement of the elastictensor of these recently synthesized single crystal RE scandates is essential for understanding dynamic lattice applications including phonon confinement, strain induced thin film growth and superlattice construction. On average, the experimental elastic constants differed by less than 5% of the theoretical values, further validating the accuracy of modern ab-initio calculations as a means of estimating the initial elastic constants used in RUS measurements.
