The deformation potentials of the E1(TO) and E2 modes of InN are determined by combining infrared spectroscopic ellipsometry, Raman scattering, and x-ray diffraction measurements, and using a reported value of the mode Gruneisen parameter. The deformation potentials are obtained for two sets of stiffness constants. Strain-free values of the InN E1(TO) mode of 477.9 cm−1 and of the E2 mode of 491.1 cm−1 have been determined.
