Temperature Compensation In A Semiconductor Micromechanical Resonator Via Charge Carrier Depletion
MetadataShow full item record
A semiconductor resonator has a substrate with a thickness extending between a first end and a second end and a pn-junction along the thickness of the substrate forming a free charge carrier depletion region. In another embodiment, a semiconductor resonator has a substrate with a crystal lattice doped at degenerate levels such that the flow of free charge carriers can be minimized. A method of compensating a temperature coefficient of a semiconductor resonator by creating a pn-junction based free charge carrier depletion region within a thickness of a substrate of the resonator is also disclosed.
