|1E - Interferometric imaging of surface vibration fields in microacoustic devices: application to research and development of SAW, BAW and MEMS components
|Kimmo Kokkonen, Qorvo Munich GmbH
|Overview of topics covered
|Monday, October 22
|This short course is intended to introduce the participant to the possibilities offered by optical non-contact probing techniques for the characterization of surface vibration fields in a wide variety of microacoustic devices and test structures.
The covered optical measurement methods are applicable over a wide frequency range from semi-static deformation measurements, low-frequency MEMS resonators and transducer arrays to modern SAW and BAW devices with their resonance frequencies up to a few GHz.
The short course starts by providing a motivation for the optical probing of surface vibrations. This is followed by an overview of optical techniques that enable non-contact measurement of the surface vibration fields. After the general overview, we will focus on interferometric techniques. This part will include an introduction to the interferometric measurement principle, typical optical setup, the detection equations, and the hardware needed for the measurement of both the amplitude and phase of the surface vibration.
The second part of the course illustrates the capabilities of optical probing through a
set of application examples. These will include topics such as measuring the plate wave dispersion properties of BAW resonators, investigating wave behavior and energy losses in SAW devices, and studying the vibration modes and non-linear behavior of MEMS resonators.
