Variable Field Magnet


Variable Field Magnet
MR Solutions

Used for conducting experiments with variable levels of magnetic field

Cryogen-free variable field superconducting magnet operating at 0.79 T, 1.5 T, and 3 T with 1H resonance frequencies of 33.6 MHz, 63.6 MHz, and 127.8 MHz, respectively

The three RF probes employed are birdcages, 9 cm in length and 5 cm in diameter, driven by a 2 kW, BT02000-AlphaSA, RF amplifier

The gradient coil is driven by GA-300 gradient amplifiers providing maximum gradient strengths of 66.4 G cm-1, 64.9 G cm-1 and 87.8 G cm-1 in the x, y and z directions

The magnet is permanently connected to a 4G superconducting magnet power supply

The magnet can rotate from a vertical to a horizontal orientation.

Research Facility

Magnetic Resonance Imaging Center
University of New Brunswick, Fredericton
New Brunswick (NB)

Our lab applies Magnetic Resonance methods to studies of materials and processes with short signal lifetimes. We do work in two areas of NMR and MRI applied to materials science: two-phase media and portable NMR instrumentation/applications.
