NMR Microtechnologies for Imaging and Spectroscopy

Dr. Mazin Jouda [Contact]

Our research focuses mainly on the design and development of hardware and circuitry for the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) as well as the Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) systems. This includes the optimization of the RF detectors, the design of application-specific MR probe heads, and the development of low-field portable MR systems for flow measurements. Furthermore, we develop innovative CMOS integrated microelectronics chips for MR signal acquisition and processing. These chips target particularly the parallel MR systems where multiple RF detectors are incorporated and, as a result, multiplexing and large signal processing capabilities are required.

Besides that, our research interests include the MR safety where we investigate the mechanical and electrical effects of MRI on the medical implants.
