  • A Four-Element 'Clover' Transceiver Array For 3 Tesla Cardiac MRI

    The design of radio frequency (RF) coils is of paramount importance to the quality and safety of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Being the signal generator and detector of MRI, RF coils are required to generate a uniform excitation in the target during transmission and high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) during reception. In the meantime, RF coils must not cause subject overheating in in-vivo human studies. This requires that RF energy deposited inside the human body and coupled to receivers should be minimized.

  • A Multiphysics Approach To Magnetron And Microwave Oven Design

    The magnetrons used in microwave ovens operate on the same frequency band as Wi-Fi equipment, and the radiation they release can interfere with the operation of wireless networks. This paper presents a multiphysics simulation of a magnetron using CST STUDIO SUITE®, with the aim of testing the electrical, magnetic, thermal and mechanical characteristics of a low-interference magnetron design. The simulation results are then compared to measurements made experimentally, and the two sets of results are shown to be in good agreement.
