Leaky surface acoustic wave (SAW) interdigital transducers (LDTs) formed on 36/spl deg/ YX-LiTaO/sub 3/ and 41/spl deg/ and 64/spl deg/ YX-LiNbO/sub 3/ are theoretically analyzed, and a new equivalent circuit representation is proposed. The influence of the attenuation constant due to leakage as well as conductance caused by bulk wave radiation are taken into account. A new treatment based on an integral equation approach provides all circuit parameters. Fundamental experiments show fairly good agreement between theoretical and experimental results, confirming that this treatment provides very accurate tools for designing leaky-SAW devices.
