A study of the surface acoustic wave (SAW) properties in three singly and two doubly rotated temperature-compensated berlinite cuts has been performed. The measured SAW properties were the velocity, the electromagnetic to acoustic coupling (Δv/v) and the frequency/temperature characteristics (Δf/f). Comparisons are made between theory and experiment.
