A concept is demonstrated for the development of a phononic surface acoustic wave interdigital transducer (IDT) able to excite acoustic waves in a transverse manner with respect to the applied electric field. The basic principles of the design and fabrication of the transversely coupled phononic transducer are presented. More specifically, the IDT consists of a regular interdigital electrode configuration on which a 2D array of low profile masses is superimposed. The transversely coupled mode of excitation is explained in terms of the specific localization of the elastic energy along with the operation within the complete frequency bandgap of the composite transducer grating. The experimental results provide solid evidence for the suggested mode of operation.
