The Poisson ratio ν of In 2O 3 has been determined by measurement of the covariation of in-plane and out-of-plane lattice parameters of strained thin films grown epitaxially on (111) and (001) oriented cubic Y-stabilized ZrO 2 substrates. The experimental results are in good agreement with values for ν calculated using atomistic simulation procedures.
