An SAW oscillator based on a GaN-sapphire acoustic delay line is reported. The oscillation frequency is determined by the GaN sound velocity and transducer period and is sensitive to temperature and to ultraviolet radiation. Our results show that GaN-based structures offer the possibility of integrating the acoustic and electronic elements on a single chip capable of operating at relatively high temperatures.
