Love wave acoustic devices are very suitable for high frequency filters because of their high phase velocity. An experimental study of Love wave devices based on ZnO/90° rotated ST-cut quartz with different thickness of ZnO films is presented. ZnO films with c-axis orientated crystalline structure have been successfully grown on quartz by r.f. sputtering technique. Phase velocity, electromechanical coupling coefficient, and temperature coefficient of frequency have been studied as a function of layer thickness. In this research, ZnO/quartz structure based Love wave acoustic filter not only has higher phase velocity and bigger electromechanical coupling coefficient than quartz substrate, but also keeps the excellent temperature coefficient of frequency.
