Research Institution
Syntonics will prototype a SAW-based sensor measuring dynamic strain at temperatures above 600C. This project presents three challenges: SAW design and fabrication; sensor packaging; and quantitative performance. The SAW sensors must use high-temperature substrates with metallization techniques that create durable features small enough to be interrogated at 2.4 GHz. The package for the SAW sensor must be tiny, aerodynamic, suitable for securely bonding onto curved surfaces, and capable for operating days and weeks at high temperatures. The SAW sensors must provide accurate calibrated data.
