    Thin-film resonator technology has been under development for over 40 years as a means to reach higher frequencies than obtainable with conventional quartz-crystal technology. Using advances in microelectronic processing, thin films of piezoelectric materials are used to fabricate resonators and filters over a range of 500 MHz to 20 GHz. This article is a review of the thin-film resonator (TFR) te... View full abstract»

    Exposure guidelines for RF radiation have been promulgated for nearly half a century. However, our understanding of biological effects of exposure to RF radiation is still evolving and more so for cellular mobile telephones and wireless personal communication devices. There are two different sets of guidelines promulgated for limiting human exposure to RF radiation, worldwide. Currently, there is ... View full abstract»
