Surface acoustic wave (SAW) devices are recognized for their versatility and efficiency in controlling and processing electrical signals. This has resulted in a multitude of device concepts for a wide range of signal processing functions, such as delay lines, filters, resonators, pulse compressors, convolvers, and many more. As SAW technology has found its way into mass market products such as TV receivers, pagers, keyless entry systems and cellular phones, the production volume has risen to millions of devices produced every day. At the other end of the scale, these are specialized high performance signal processing SAW devices for satellite communication and military applications, such as radar and electronic warfare. This volume, together with Volume 1, presents an overview of recent advances in SAW technology, systems and applications by some of the foremost researchers in this exciting field. Contents: Coupling-of-Modes Analysis of SAW Devices (V Plessky & J Koskela); Theory and Applications of Green''s Functions (A R Baghai-Wadji); New Piezoelectric Substrates for SAW Devices (J Kosinski); Pseudo and High Velocity Pseudo SAWs (M P da Cunha); SAW Devices Beyond 5 GHz (H Odagawa & K Yamanouchi); Wireless SAW Identification and Sensor Systems (F Schmidt & G Scholl); Interaction of Surface Acoustic Waves, Electrons, and Light (A Wixforth). Readership: Graduate students, researchers and academics in device and circuit design, as well as designers of mobile communications systems.
