  1. 1. Switchable and tunable bulk acoustic wave resonators based on BaxSr1-xTiO3 thin films

    Author : John Berge; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Ferroelectric thin films; field induced piezoelectric effect.; tunable microwave devices; bulk acoustic wave devices; piezoelectric resonators;

    Abstract : The main focus of this thesis is the study of a novel microwave component, the tunable thin film bulk acoustic wave resonator (TFBAR), based on ferroelectric BaxSr1-xTiO3 thin films. Conventional fixed frequency TFBARs, widely used for filtering applications in wireless communication systems, are based on ordinary piezoelectrics. READ MORE

  2. 2. Tunable Bulk Acoustic Wave Resonators Based on BaxSr1-xTiO3 Thin Films

    Author : John Berge; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; piezoelectric resonators; bulk acoustic wave devices; field induced piezoelectric effect; tunable devices; ferroelectric films;

    Abstract : The main focus of this thesis is the study of a novel component based on ferroelectric BaxSr1−xTiO3 thin films – the tunable thin film bulk acoustic resonator (TFBAR). The tunable TFBAR utilizes a dc field induced piezoelectric effect in the ferroelectric film, in contrast to conventional fixed frequency TFBARs, widely used for filtering applications in wireless communication systems,which are based on ordinary piezoelectric materials.

    Abstract : In recent years there has been a huge increase in the growth of communication systems such as mobile phones, wireless local area networks (WLAN), satellite navigation and various other forms of wireless data communication that have made analogue frequency control a key issue. The increase in frequency spectrum crowding and the increase of frequency into microwave region, along with the need for minimisation and capacity improvement, has shown the need for the development of high performance, miniature, on-chip filters operating in the low to medium GHz frequency range.
