In some applications of piezoelectrically driven acoustic resonators, the power dissipated in the resonating material may be sufficient to significantly change the temperature and hence the resonance frequency. A straightforward analysis shows that this effect can lead to severe hysteresis and thermal bistability. This model is in agreement with experiments that have been performed using a fused silica acousto‐optic modulator.
