Abstract: A two-port monolithic crystal filter (MCF) viscosity sensor has been developed using high coupling langasite material and advanced packaging techniques . The present work details the evaluation of quartz and langasite MCF elements with varying shapes, contours and electrode designs. The study has resulted in a commercial design on 10.25 mm blanks, housed in a TO-8 header with support circuitry contained in a ½” NPT threaded bolt.
Keywords: viscosity sensor, monolithic crystal filter
