Abstract
A new type of piezoelectric resonance quartz crystal temperature sensors which exhibits a high precision and a good stability has been developed. A Y-cut (4.05°) quartz resonator operating on low-frequency thickness C-mode was chosen as the temperature sensor because of its availability and its good linear frequency versus temperature characteristic. In order to reduce the mounting effects and to decouple interfering modes of motion, the contour structures of the quartz wafers having a biconvex type and bat metallic electrodes with the sine ripple on the surfaces of the quartz wafer are used. The resonance frequency was analyzed by three-dimensional Finite Element Method and the results are compared with the theoretical values whenever they are available. Using low-cost oscillators connected to a microcontroller, a precise measurement system of temperature is implemented. Experimentally, the accuracy of measurement is better than 0.05 degree C (The errors include non-linearity, reproducibility and influence of load temperature) over the temperature range -60 degree C to 200 degree C.
