Abstract : The patent relates to a surface-wave device comprising a substrate capable of propagating an acoustic surface wave and a conductive structure disposed upon the substrate, comprising two pairs of sets of interdigital linear electrodes, and a pair of bus bars connected to opposite ends of the sets of electrodes. A material which is to be used as an overlay is chosen in advance. The spacing between any two adjacent electrodes of the sets of electrodes is then varied in a prescribed manner, the spacing of the output pair being a mirror image of the input pair, the unequal spacing causing a modification of the propagation characteristics of the acoustic wave.
