Aluminum Scandium Nitride for 5G Mobile Applications
To meet the ultrawide bandwidth requirements for fifth generation (5G) mobile phones, manufacturers have recently adopted scandium aluminum nitride as the piezoelectric in radio frequency filters. However, overheating may limit the performance. This work uses a FLINT oscillator from Light Conversion to monitor how the composition, thickness, and microstructure of the alloy influence its thermal conductivity.
The paper explaining this work is entitled, “Thermal Conductivity of Aluminum Scandium Nitride for 5G Mobile Applications and Beyond.”
Features of the FLINT femtosecond oscillators include:
- < 40 fs pulse duration
- Up to 260 nJ pulse energy
- Up to 20 W output power
- 76 MHz repetition rate
- No amplified spontaneous emission
- Industrial-grade design
- Optional automated second harmonic generator
- Optional CEP stabilization
- Optional repetition rate locking to an external source
