Quartz Crystal Resonator Model Measurement and Sensitivity Study
A quartz crystal resonator can be modeled as a one or two port electrical circuit. Extraction of the equivalent electrical parameters can be accomplished using scattering parameters measured near the resonant frequency of the crystal.
Due to measurement errors inherent in the network analyzer, the extracted parameters will vary from run to run. These measurement inaccuracies lead to greater errors in the electrical parameters in the one port model as the magnitude of s11 approaches one. This thesis will present results of measured and simulated data and a first order sensitivity theory for the one port model. An express ion for the error in the extracted series resistance will be derived. Simulated and actual crystal data will be compared to the theoretical values.
