It is very important to extract all four coupling-of-modes (COM) parameters of the electrode cells for the simulation and optimal design of a low loss surface acoustic wave (SAW) filter. A new approach for fast and full extraction of the COM parameters for a multielectrode-type grating is proposed. The field distribution of the wave under the periodic shorted grating is calculated by the periodic Green's function method. The phase of the reflection is determined from the positions of the standing wave node. The transduction coefficient and its phase are determined by the charge distribution at low frequency. The COM parameters of the commonly used electrode width controlled (EWC) single phase unidirectional transducer (SPUDT) is computed. It shows that this is a simple and direct way to extract all the COM parameters for SPUDT and, accordingly, is a powerful tool for the optimization of the filter structure.
