Abstract--Bulk dilation modes in rectangular plates of
particular orientations in single crystal silicon are found to have
distinct advantages over to those in isotropic materials. Finite
element modeling using an anisotropic model reveals plates
aligned to the <110> direction in (100) silicon have modes which
offer excellent capacitive coupling and good isolation to the
supports. Low impedance and high Q are predicted for select
