Cell placement in an element and structural modifications on the array baffle significantly change the bandwidth, band shape and signal to noise ratio of a CMUT receiver array. In this paper, optimum receiver performance tailoring by means of cell placement, cell size variation and use of dummy cells in the array elements is discussed. The performance of the array is modified acoustically at the acoustic port of the elements.
