Abstract : The coupling of elastic and electrical parameters in a piezoelectric material has been widely used in a number of practical applications such as transducers for digital and analog ultrasonic-delay lines and resonators for oscillators and filters. Basic dispersion relations for elastic waves in piezoelectric plates are used to show how to understand some of the features of these devices that are of general interest to the device engineer. Some of the elementary characteristics of extensional, shear, and flexural resonators and transducers are discussed.
