ABSTRACT
This paper reports on a new class of high-Q single
crystal silicon (SCS) resonators that are piezoelectrically
actuated and sensed, and have voltage-tunable center
frequencies. The resonating element is made out of the SCS
device layer of a SOI wafer. In a unique manner,
piezoelectric transduction was integrated with capacitive
fine-tuning of the resonator center frequencies to
compensate for any process variations. A quality factor of
6,200 was measured for the 1.7MHz 1st
resonance mode of a
clamped-clamped beam resonator in 50mTorr vacuum. A
200Ám long, 4.2Ám thick beam was operated in its higher
order modes and demonstrated a Q of 5,300, 3,000, and
