Abstract

The purpose of this work is to design, fabricate, and compare dispersive SAW devices using both linear FM and a new non-linear FM scheme. This new non-linear FM scheme uses the Blackman function as the modulating signal of the FM waveform. Up-chirped and V-chirped devices for both linear and the new non-linear FM scheme and their corresponding matched filters are compared.

Design considerations are discussed in detail. An efficient sampling algorithm (which can also be applied to other non-linearly modulated FM waveforms) developed to facilitate the design of the SAW devices is presented.
