Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) based device is very much suitable for detecting very small quantity of vapours of explosive chemicals. There are three possible kinds of SAW devices which can be used for sensor fabrication such as delay lines, resonator and filter. Choice among them depends on individual preferences and sometimes it is the matter of chance. In this paper, a high frequency 70 MHz SAW device has been developed for the detection of chemical warfare (CW) agents. SAW device is fabricated on ST -quartz substrate as it has negligible temperature coefficient at room temperature. The device is having dual oscillator circuit configuration for compensating the effects of temperature, humidity and pressure. Device is coated with suitable polymer and the applicability of the sensor for Dimethyl methylphosphonate (DMMP) detection has been demonstrated.
