Abstract:

Information essential for the design of acoustic filters, signal processors, and other miniature, lightweight devices for use in electromagnetic warfare and in the detection and discrimination of reentry vehicles is given in this report. Computations of surface wave velocity and power flow angle, and estimates of surface wave coupling to interdigital transducers are given for various orientations of the following surface wave substrate materials Ba2NaNb5O15, Bi12GeO20, CdS, Diamond, Eu3Fe5O12, GaAs, Germanium, InAs, InSb, LiNbO3, LiTaO3, MgO, PbS, Quartz, Rutile, Sapphire, Silicon, Spinel, YAG, YGaG, YIG, and ZnO. Particular cuts of interest are then chosen for more detailed numerical calculations of mechanical and electrical parameters governing acoustic wave propagation in crystalline media. A list of material constants and a bibliography of 135 surface wave papers are also included. Author
