    A hydrogen sensor is reported in which a small piezoelectric-sound-resonance-cavity (PSRC) is used as the sensing element. Detection utilizes sound resonance and acoustic property differences between H[SUB2] and air as a sensing mechanism. Changes in H[SUB2] concentration result in a shift of...

    High-tone bulk acoustic resonators (HBARs) have been fabricated on four types of substrates: c-axis sapphire, AT-cut crystal quartz, fused silica, and <100> single crystal silicon. Quality factors of the HBARs on the four substrates have been compared. Temperature effect on the Q and resonant...
