|Abstract||The lattice dynamic, elastic, superconducting, and thermodynamic properties of the high-pressure cubic metallic phase AlH3 are studied within density function theory. The calculated elastic modulus and phonon dispersion curves at various pressures indicate that the cubic phase is both mechanically and dynamically stable above 73 GPa. The superconducting transition temperature was calculated using Allen-Dynes modification of the McMillan formula based on the Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer theory. It is found that T-c approaches a linear decrease in the low pressure range at the rate dT(C)/dP approximate to-0.22K/GPa but gradually decreases exponentially at higher pressure, and then it becomes 0 K upon further compression. The calculations indicate that T-c is about 2.042 K at 110 GPa, in agreement with experimental results. The soft phonon modes, especially the lowest acoustic mode, contribute almost 79% to the total electron-phonon coupling parameter s lambda for cubic AlH3 at 73 GPa. However, they disappear gradually with increasing pressure, showing a responsibility for the variation of T-c. The thermodynamic properties of cubic AlH3, such as the dependence of thermal expansion coefficient alpha(V) on pressure and temperature, the specific heat capacity C-P, as well as the electronic specific heat coefficient C-el, were also investigated by the quasi-harmonic approximation theory.
