A new gas sensor has been designed by using SH-SAW device. Shear horizontal mode surface acoustic wave (SH-SAW) has a unique characteristic of complete reflection at the free edges of the substrate. The SH-SAW are excited on a 36 YX LiTaO 3 and the right angle edge of the substrate has been used to reflect these waves. Both the phase and amplitude of the SH-SAW reflected from the edge were measured as a sensor response. Several experiments were performed to verify the edge reflection type SAW sensor in gas phase.
