1. AT – Cut Quartz crystal operating in Thickness Shear Mode (For QCM – Quartz Crystal Monitor Applications)

2. What is AT – Cut Quartz? • AT – Cut Quartz means Y is the cut direction (thickness direction)and X is the wave propagation direction. • In AT – Cut Quartz, the Y – axis is rotated by 35°21´ • Therefore to obtain correct crystal orientation, one needs to get back to the definition of this crystal cut. • AT – Cut Quartz is represented as yxl 35°21´ • which means “yx” is the initial position of the crystal, where • the first letter “y” is the thickness direction • the second letter “x” is the length direction. • the third letter “l” indicates the axis of rotation (l = length). In this case, “x” is the axis of rotation. • For this configuration, the vibration mode is thickness-shear.
