Paper Abstract

This paper presents the conceptual design, fabrication and experimentation of a Love wave based acoustic ice sensor for sensing the phase change from liquid water to solid ice. The sensing of this transition is made possible by the shear horizontal nature of Love waves, utilizing it's damped to undamped nature during the transition from water to ice respectively.
