The aim of this thesis was to extend previous work to SAW resonator based wideband bandpass filters on LiNbO3 substrates. In order to accomplish this aim, it was necessary to: 1) apply coupling of modes (COM) theory 2) develop custom fabrication techniques for black LiNbO3 substrates 3) understand the critical issues in fabricating a wideband bandpass SAW filter. This thesis discusses the issues that must be addressed in order to achieve successful devices.
