Abstract:

The paper describes techniques for the generation and propagation of elastic waves in the frequency range 1 to 3 GHz. These techniques include the design, fabrication, and evaluation of microwave acoustic delay lines consisting of highly oriented electroacoustic CdS transducers vacuum deposited on single-crystal sapphire propagating media. Typical electrical characteristics at 2 GHz of these thin-film approximately one micron transducers and delay media combination, in both coaxial and strip transmission lines, include delay of 6 microsec, insertion loss less than 40 dB, input VSWR less than 2.0 over a 20-percent bandwidth and operating temperature from -74 to 96C. Acoustic propagation velocity, power handling capabilities, and impedance matching techniques used with these electroacoustic delay lines are also discussed. Author
