Dispersion Diagram of a Thin-Film BAW Structure
Application ID: 67771
This model shows how to create dispersion diagrams from simulation results by extending the tutorial Thin-Film BAW Composite Resonator. The dispersion curve can be plotted against both real and imaginary values of the wave number, corresponding to the propagating modes and evanescent modes, respectively. Each mode can also be visualized by plotting its displacement field. The consideration about such propagating and evanescent modes is an important part of the process in selecting appropriate design parameters for the layer structure of a BAW resonator.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- either the Acoustics Module, MEMS Module, or Structural Mechanics Module and
- either the AC/DC Module, MEMS Module, Plasma Module, or Semiconductor Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
