Because of the body-centered tetragonal lattice of S-Sn unit cell, the mechanical properties of the one-grain Sn microbumps are remarkably anisotropic, which are proved by the difference of the elastic modulus and the stiffness in the different orientations.
At ambient conditions, EuCo2As2 (14/mmm) has a tetragonal lattice structure with a bulk modulus of 48 [+ or -] 4 GPa.
