In this work, we report an investigation of polymer overlayer thickness in a Love wave device working at a fundamental frequency of 110 MHz and at the 330 MHz harmonic. At both frequencies, we observe the initial reduction in insertion loss associated with a Love wave device. Significantly, we also observe a series of resonant conditions as the layer thickness is further increased. The separation of these resonances is attributed to an increase in thickness of half of the acoustic wavelength in the polymer.
