    To fully exploit high-quality piezoelectric crystals in acoustic wave devices, it is necessary to remove limitations not related to the crystal quality. Among them, the 'diffraction loss' is most serious. Previously, we have developed the ball surface acoustic wave (SAW) sensor using crystal...
