Phonon-phonon coupling and thermoelastic relaxation are the principal thermal causes of ultrasonic attenuation in solids at room temperature. Sec­ond order elastic moduli and third order elastic moduli have been used to study the ultrasonic attenuation suffered by compressional and shear acous­tic waves for some tetrahedrally bonded semiconducting materials, viz. GaP, InP and InAs along ⟨100⟩, ⟨110⟩ and ⟨111⟩ crystallographic directions. At­tenuation in case of InP is found to be quite large as compared to GaP and InAs. The reason behind this discrepancy is due to doping of Cr in InP sam­ple and it is also seen that ultrasonic attenuation due to phonon-phonon interaction dominates over that due to thermoelastic relaxation.
