Abstract
A UV sensor composed of a surface acoustic wave (SAW) device and a high-frequency amplifier was constructed using a Colpitts oscillator circuit. Zinc oxide (ZnO) films of SAW devices were prepared on lithium niobate substrates with various deposition temperatures to investigate their effect on the sensitivity of UV sensors. Larger grain sizes and a better chemical composition of the ZnO films were obtained at high-deposition temperatures rather than at low-deposition temperatures. An extreme frequency shift of 264 kHz and sensitivity of 0.21 kHz/(µW/cm2) were obtained for the ZnO-based SAW oscillator at the deposition temperature of 400 °C.
