Reply to ‘‘Comment on ‘Brillouin-scattering study of the elastic constants of phenothiazine through the phase transition’ ’’
Date of this Version
Disagreement in the ordering of relative magnitudes of the elastic constants of phenothiazine with those of Ecolivet et al. is resolved. Dubious methodologies and assumptions employed by Ecolivet et al. in their measurements, approximations, and arguments [C. Ecolivet et al., Phys. Rev. B 44, 4185 (1991)] are noted. Samples employed by these investigators in both their ultrasonic and Brillouin measurements are shown to exhibit properties consistent with impure samples and inconsistent with those of Sartwell and Eckhardt.
