Paper Abstract

Ionizing radiation total dose effects have been investigated for 199 MHz SAW resonators fabricated on air-swept and as grown (non-swept) 40 degree(s) Y-rotated quartz. Sensitivity to radiation is substrate material dependent, with pure substrates showing less radiation degradation in performance. An unexpected reduction in sensitivity was found for devices coated with a 400 angstroms layer of SiOx.
