The Power Durability of 900 MHz Band Double-Mode-Type Surface Acoustic Wave Filters and Improvement in Power Durability of Al-Cu Thin Film Electrodes by Cu Atom Segregation.
Access this Article
The power durability of double-mode-type surface acoustic wave filters, which have recently seen wide use in cellular phones, is investigated. It was found that the lifetime of double-mode-type surface acoustic wave filters is reduced considerably when high input power is applied, due to non-linear behavior. Moreover, the authors demonstrate that the power durability of an Al-Cu thin film electrode is greatly improved by Cu atom segregation in the grain boundaries.
