Abstract

Experimental data are presented for an acoustic wave sensor based on a layer-guided shear acoustic plate mode excited on a thin quartz substrate. The effect of coating the front and back faces with polymer waveguiding layers is shown to convert the plate modes into layer-guided plate modes in a manner analogous to Love waves and to produce a similar enhancement of mass sensitivity. These layer-guided plate mode devices offer the possibility of liquid-phase sensing with transducers situated on the face of the substrate isolated from the liquid, while offering a mass sensitivity comparable to a Love wave device.
