Here is a talk by Chris Ford explaining our work on surface acoustic waves at an undergraduate level.

The SAWtrain website gives an introduction to a range of work on SAWs, including our own. There is also a 3-minute animation of how SAWs can be used in the various projects supported by the EU SAWtrain project.
