Electrode width controlled (EWC) single-phase, unidirectional transducers (SPUDT) is widely used for low loss surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters. The insertion loss and fractional bandwidth of the filters are strongly related to the reflectivity of EWC cells. In order to achieve wide band and low loss simultaneously, it is necessary to obtain higher reflectivity. The relationship between geometrical configuration of EWC cells and reflection coefficient, (and transduction coefficient as well) is studied. Simulation results indicate that the reflectivity of the EWC SPUDT cell could exceed 5% on a 128/spl deg/ Y-X lithium niobate (LiNbO/sub 3/) substrate. Using such structure, low loss SPUDT test filters without weighting are fabricated. The measured 3 dB bandwidth is 3.9% and the insertion loss is 2.9 dB. The theoretical calculation is verified by the experiment.
