Currently, AlN is the preferred material in electroacoustic applications but modern applications necessitate the synthesis of materials with a range of electroacoustic properties. Among the promising candidates are the wurtzite Boron-containing AlN alloys. In here we study theoretically some of the material properties of wurtzite B0.125Al0.875N. The results indicate that wurtzite B0.125Al0.875N exhibits a strong configurational dependence of the electromechanical coupling constant. It is further shown that the lattice parameters as well as the stiffness constants are less sensitive of the atomic configuration and comply well with the Vegards rule.
