Abstract : In view of combined use of piezoelectric and semiconductoring properties of Indium Phosphide, new surface (SAW) and surface skimming bulk waves (SSBW) are described. The properties of semi-insulating InP crystals are investigated in terms of piezoelectric coupling demonstrating that the SSBW branches may be more useful than the SAW branches. Two Rayleigh modes and one Bleustein-Gulyaev branch have been experimentally investigated in the 200-300 MHz range and good agreement between theory and experiment is reported. (Author)
