  • Publication number: 20150362463
    Abstract: A sensor which uses a detection element such as a surface acoustic wave element, and includes a flow passage for a specimen is provided. A sensor includes a substrate; a detection element located on the substrate and having a detection portion which detects an object to be detected contained in a specimen, in an upper surface thereof; and a flow passage structure located on the substrate and covering the detection portion with a space. The flow passage structure has an inlet for the specimen, a flow passage continuing from the inlet, and a space which continues from an end portion of the flow passage closer to the detection element and is located above the detection portion, and a bottom surface of the flow passage has, on the end portion of the flow passage closer to the detection element, a notched portion whose width gradually decreases toward an upstream of the flow passage.

  • Patent number: 7504911
    Abstract: A plurality of IDT electrodes 2 to 7 each having a large number of electrode fingers extending in a direction perpendicular to a propagation direction of a surface acoustic wave propagating on a piezoelectric substrate 1 are arranged on the piezoelectric substrate 1 along the propagation direction, and each of the two adjacent IDT electrodes out of the plurality of IDT electrodes 2 to 7 comprises a variable pitch section and a fixed pitch section. The electrode finger pitch in the variable pitch section gradually decreases toward the boundary between the two adjacent IDT electrodes, and the minimum electrode finger pitch portion in the two variable pitch sections is on one side spaced apart from the boundary. There can be provided a surface acoustic wave apparatus having a large pass bandwidth, having a low insertion loss, and having improved flatness in a pass band.
