Fast frequency-sweep analysis of RF coils for MRI

Dan Jiao, Jian Ming Jin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A fast frequency-sweep technique is developed for the analysis of radio- frequency coils for magnetic resonance imaging. This technique applies the method of asymptotic waveform evaluation to the moment method solution of the integral equation for the original physical problem. Numerical examples show that the proposed technique can speed up the analysis by more than an order of magnitude.
