To obtain a bonded structure with low attenuation for longitudinal leaky surface acoustic waves (LLSAWs), the propagation and resonance properties on a LiTaO3 (LT) or LiNbO3 thin plate bonded to an X-cut quartz substrate were theoretically analyzed. The attenuation of an X-cut 31°Y-propagating LT (X31°Y-LT)/X32°Y-quartz (X32°Y-Q) was calculated to be 0.0005 dB/λ at the normalized LT thin plate thickness h/λ = 0.062 (λ: wavelength) and was lower than that on an X31°Y-LT/AT45°X-Q. Using a finite element method, for the X31°Y-LT/X32°Y-Q, the admittance ratio and Q factor were improved to 120 dB and 53 400 from 62 dB and 1000 for the X31°Y-LT/AT45°X-Q, respectively. Then, the propagation and resonance properties were measured. For the X31°Y-LT/X32°Y-Q, the measured electromechanical coupling factor (K 2) and Q factor increased to 5.6% and 280 from 1.8% and 32 for the single LT, respectively. The temperature coefficient of frequency of the LLSAW was measured to be -26.2 ppm °C-1
