To investigate the pressure dependence of the AlN phonon frequencies Raman spectra of single-crystalline bulk AlN under hydrostatic pressure up to 10 GPa were recorded. The Raman peak positions of the A 1 (TO), E 1 (TO), E 2 (high), A 1 (LO) and quasi-longitudinal optical (QLO) phonons were plotted as a function of pressure. The experimental data was fitted using the traditional parabolic fit (M. Kuball et al . (2001) Appl. Phys. Lett., 78, 724 ) and fits to physical models, density, volume, etc. The mode Grüneisen parameters of the different phonons were determined for each fit and significant differences are found between the various fits. Results are compared with recent theoretical calculations (J.-M. Wagner et al . (2000) Phys. Rev. B, 62, 4526 ).
