RF (Radio Frequency) Micro-Coil Design for Small Animal MRI

The research question to be answered by this project would be whether the developed RF (Resonance Frequency) coil could generate the frequency of 297 MHz that is required to operate a 7T MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scanner by the Larmor frequency. The development of the RF coil frame, the resonating structure, and the interfaced circuit will go through a series of research, simulation, fabrication, tuning, testing, and modifying the design and repeating the process until we reach our determined goal.
