Pure Premium Quartz (PPQ) synthesis for SAW resonators beyond the state of the art

Background, Motivation and Objective  Quartz crystal is a key material for the development of the first generations of cellular phones with frequency filters operating in the 70-350 MHz frequency range with a quality factor times frequency (Q×f) products reaching values around 9×1012. Recent developments aim at developing low phase noise oscillator, taking advantage of the compactness, temperature stability and resonance quality of resonators built on the so-called AT-cut family defined...

CSR: Cristal innov is committed to a proactive policy.

Innovation driven by the challenges of climate change: Recycling non-compliant parts, either by reintegrating them as raw materials into the process, or by diversifying their use, with the example of CRYSTALITE. Diverting technologies for innovations in favor of the environment: the Synterre project aims to use hydrothermal synthesis technology (used for the synthesis of quartz) in order to purify rare earths in an eco-friendly process, compared to current technologies. Search for new crystal...
