In this letter, temperature compensation for aluminum nitride (AlN) Lamb wave resonators operating at high temperature is presented. By adding a compensating layer of silicon dioxide (SiO2), the turnover temperature can be designed for high temperature operation by varying the normalized AlN film thickness (hAlN/λ) and the normalized SiO2 film thickness (hSiO2/λ). With different designs of hAlN and hSiO2, the Lamb wave resonators were well temperature-compensated at 214 °C, 430 °C, and 542 °C, respectively. The experimental results demonstrate that the thermally compensated AlN Lamb wave resonators are promising for frequency control and sensing applications at high temperature.
