Pereira daCunha & Vetelino: New Grant

Drs. Mauricio Pereira da Cunha and John Vetelino were awarded a second year contract for $132,300 from TriQuint Semiconductor. The focus of this research project will be on methods for thin-film material characterization for SAW (surface acoustic wave) and TCSAW (temperature compensated surface acoustic wave) devices. The goal is to extract acoustic material parameters for metals and dielectric layers.
