The anisotropy of elastic bulk constants of wurtzite InN is analyzed theoretically on the basis of available data for elastic constants. A considerable anisotropy is evaluated both for Young's modulus and Poisson ratio of highly textured InN epitaxial films deposited on the basal plane. A comparative analysis of elastic properties is conducted for wurtzite InN, GaN and AlN. An approach is suggested for estimating vacancy concentrations on the basis of SIMS and x-ray diffraction measurements.
