A Lamb wave device using a polyvinylidene flouride film is described. The transducer of the device consists of interdigital electrodes and a uniform counter‐electrode. The performance of the device is highly temperature dependent. The attenuation of the Lamb wave on the film increases with higher frequencies. The attenuation decreases with increasing temperature, while the conversion efficiency of the transducer is nearly constant for the temperature change. The output of the device changes significantly under the influence of irradiation from a black body, and the device is very sensitive in the infrared region.
