Langasite (LGS) has attracted considerable attention from researchers as a potential substrate material for piezoelectric device applications due to its very good frequency stability and moderately large electromechanical coupling factors for acoustic wave devices. This paper presents a new determination of the second order elastic constants of LGS using acoustic wave velocities measured by a time-of-flight cross-correlation method. Two types of ultrasonic transducers have been used to generate longitudinal and shear bulk waves that propagate through cube-shaped specimens. The specimens and attached transducers are placed inside a temperature chamber to maintain a constant environmental temperature during the measurements. We present a full comparison between the new values determined here and those previously reported.
