Abstract--This paper demonstrates a dual-mode,
micromachined temperature and relative humidity (RH) sensor
platform using two ZnO-on-silicon, lateral-mode bulk acoustic
wave (BAW) resonators. A moisture-insensitive reference
resonator is utilized in conjunction with an identical, humidity-
functionalized resonator to yield a thermally compensated RH
sensor. The reference sensor exploits the dual-mode response of
fundamental and higher order in-plane resonance modes in the
range of 30-100 MHz to eliminate the RH sensor dependence on
temperature. Hygroscopic polyethyleneimine (PEI) is deposited
on annexed sensing platforms of the BAW resonator to enable
operation from 20 to 92 %RH with high Q in air. A humidity
