Abstract

In order to study relaxation characteristics of acoustic velocity and viscoelasticity of the liquid, a wide frequency sweep in the range of MHz to GHz is desired. Thickness shear acoustic mode (TSM) viscosity sensors such as QCM or FBAR can only operate at the MHz range or the GHz range, respectively. In this study, therefore, we report a new type HBAR (High-overtone Bulk Acoustic Resonator) sensor which makes it possible to operate in a wide frequency range. The HBAR consists of the c-axis tilted ScAlN film grown on a zero TCF AT-cut quartz crystal plate. Frequency shifts were measured for various concentration of glycerine solutions. As a result, the tendency of resonant frequency decreasing caused by liquid viscosity increasing is observed in both theoretical and experimental data.
