    Abstract

    In order to study relaxation characteristics of viscoelasticity of the liquid, a wide frequency sweep in the range of MHz to GHz is desired. We, therefore, report a new type HBAR (High overtone Bulk Acoustic Resonator) sensor which makes it possible to operate in a wide frequency range. We choose AT-cut quartz as the substrate whose TCF is zero at room temperature to suppress frequency shifts due to the temperature change. TCF of the HBAR in air is measured to be -3.2 ppm/°C, which demonstrates the great improvement of TCF compared with single ScAlN films (-62 ppm/°C) due to the zero TCF AT-cut quartz substrate. In this study, frequency shifts and frequency peak attenuations were measured for various concentration of glycerin solutions to demonstrate usefulness of the HBAR viscosity measurement.
