Interfaces in composite materials are considered as a material phase confined between two separate grains or phases. Interface chemistry, structure, and thickness together strongly influence material microstructure and mechanical properties. The present work focuses on presenting an experiment based analytical method to predict thickness dependent elastic properties of materials interfaces by treating the interfaces and the area around them in a material as an elastic continuum. Interface is explicitly considered as a finite thickness entity to calculate the interface elastic constants. The experiments are based on the Nano-mechanical Raman spectroscopy (NMRS) developed by authors earlier with a capability to simultaneously measure stress components in orthogonal directions during an in-situ Nano-mechanical loading. An analytical model is developed based on boundary conditions of interface to predict thickness dependent interface elastic constants.
