    Thin-film bulk-acoustic-wave (BAW) devices are used for RF selectivity in mobile communication system and other wireless applications. Currently, the conventional RF filters are getting replaced by BAW filters in all major cell phone standards. In this thesis, we study solidly mounted BAW resonators (SMR) which are building blocks of these filters. The good selectivity offered by the BAW resonators makes them excellent components for inter-stage filters and duplexers for mobile applications.
