Title: Elastic wave device

Abstract: In an elastic wave device including an input side electrode and an output side electrode being a resonant single-phase unidirectional transducers (RSPUDT) provided with respective pairs of bus bars opposing to each other on a piezoelectric substrate and a number of excitation electrode fingers extending in a comb-teeth shape so as to respectively cross each other from the respective bus bars, the elastic waves are repeatedly reflected and amplified between the central part of the input side electrode and the central part of the output side electrode along the direction of extension of the respective bus bars by the excitation electrode fingers of the input side electrode and the output side excitation electrode, the elastic wave device includes a damper at least on either one of the input side bus bar or the output side bus bar in an area between the central part of the input side electrode in the direction of movement of the elastic waves and the central part of the output side electrode in the direction of movement of the elastic waves so that the energy leaked out into the bus bar is absorbed.
