ESE Seminar: "RF/Mixed-Signal Circuits and Systems toward Next-Generation MRI"

Mar 9, 2017
11 a.m.
Green Hall, Room 0120

Sung-Min Sohn, PhD, Assistant Professor Department of Radiology University of Minnesota and faculty candidate, will present.

Abstract: Dr. Sohn will present his research topics to overcome technical barriers to increase the accessibility of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and improve the quality of MR imaging for next-generation MRI that realizes miniaturization, lightweight, low cost, and safety. Most of his researches are related to the oscillating field (B1) of RF coils (antennas in MRI) and interface circuits between RF coils and RF signal chains of transmit (Tx) and receive (Rx). Especially, he will focus on the development of RF/mixed-signal circuits for simultaneous transmit and receive (STAR) and automatic correction systems of frequency tuning, impedance matching, and RF coupling. His research results show the ultra-low RF peak power capability and replacement of manual adjustments to obtain human head MR images.
