The Fabrication Technology of Rayleigh Wave Devices

  • R. Veith
Part of the Springer Series on Wave Phenomena book series (SSWAV, volume 2)


The need grows for communication forces telecommunication engineers to transmit more information over a limited number of channels in cable, fiberoptic, terrestrial radio and satellite networks. With a given bandwidth per channel the only way to increase information capacity is to improve the dynamic range or signal to noise ratio. This requires stable frequency sources and filters precisely matched to a signal spectrum in amplitude and phase.
