Power Flow Angle and Pressure Dependence of SAW Propagation Characteristics in Quartz



A Ballato, Dylan Williams, T Lukaszek, F Y. Cho


Surface acoustic wave propagation on doubly rotated cuts of quartz is considered. Sample static frequency-temperature results are given corresponding to regions where the second order temperature coefficient is small, and these are compared to singly rotated cuts. The force- frequency effect is measured, as is power flow angle, for sample cuts, and it is shown how the static frequency-temperature curve may be compensated using the power flow variation with temperature. The anisotropy ratio is tabulated for a number of doubly rotated cuts.
