Abstract : The properties of Love waves are reviewed. A theoretical investigation of Love waves in magnetic substrates is discussed, and discovery of a unique non-reciprocal coupling between elastic and magnetostatic surface waves is described. Development of a thin-film surface-wave transducer of general utility at UHF frequencies is described. (Author)
