Hardware

The hardware group develops hardware components and imaging systems with a focus on high field and multimodal imaging. Projects are application driven or investigate fundamental design choices and are targeted at providing optimum instrumentation for a scientific research question. A key area of interest is the investigation of coil arrays for parallel, multinuclear and multimodal imaging in both human and animal research. The group technically and administratively manages major parts of the imaging infrastructure of the INM-4. Examples of recent and ongoing projects are described in more detail below.

Projects

MR Systems

MRI Systems

9.4T animal scanner with parallel transmit and clinical user interface -- this unique animal scanner has been developed at the Forschungszentrum Jülich by combining components from different vendors as well as in house hardware

MR component development

Fieldprobe

Field Monitoring

MR experiments rely on a homogeneous and stable static magnetic field, superimposed by dynamic field gradients, which change in magnitude over time depending on the applied pulse sequence.

"Traveling-Wave" Systems

Travelling Wave Systems

The main goal of this project is to investigate the installation of travelling wave systems on a 9.4T whole-body MR-PET scanner. For this new kind of signal excitation and reception new excitation devices, e.g. antennas, are required
