Zero-Quiescent Power Tuning of Magnetostatic Wave RF Filters by Strain-Induced Magnetocrystalline Anisotropy Field

Wideband, highly-integrated RF systems are essential to enable mission critical operations for DoD; however they often have limited dynamic range and are susceptible to jamming. This talk will present our recent development on zero-quiescent power tuning of magnetostatic wave RF filters by strain-induced magnetocrystalline anisotropy field, which exploits intimate multi-physical coupling in ferroelectric and ferromagnetic materials, and can potentially enable low SWaP tunable filtering devices to protect these systems and make them more robust and resistant to interference.
