Experimental characterization of capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducers
In this paper, capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducers are fabricated using a sacrificial surface micromachining process. A testing procedure has been established in order to measure the absolute transmit and receive sensitivity spectra of the fabricated devices. The experiments are performed in oil. Pulse-echo experiments are performed and the results are compared to the pitch-catch measurements using calibrated transducers.
