Abstract

Prof. Xiaodong Yang

Magnetic resonance technology at low field (LF,~0.5 T) and ultra low field (ULF, ~1 nT) is a rapidly growing area of research. It has wide applications in biology, medicine, petroleum, rubber industry and so on. What is the current development of LF/ULF-MR technology? What are the bottlenecks in this field? What are its future applications and prospects? This talk will review LF/ULF-MR technology development, with the introduction of the related research works in Suzhou Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Technology of Chinese Academy of Sciences.
