Event details

Dimitris Sakellariou presents a seminar as part of the Magnetic Resonance Research Group's seminar series.

Permanent magnets (PM) can and have been used in Magnetic Resonance since its early days, to offer transportability and miniaturization. Modern materials offer new opportunities for generating highly compact homogeneous NMR and MRI systems. Over the last ten years we have developed a number of portable one-sided and enclosed high-resolution permanent magnet systems and recently a rotating MRI system for small animals. All these systems will be briefly discussed and novel PM systems, which can be combined with superconducting magnets, will be presented with particular emphasis on instrumentation advances towards sensor miniaturization.

Speaker information

Dr Dimitris Sakellariou, DSM / IRAMIS / SIS2M / LSDRM, CEA-Saclay,. Dimitris Sakellariou is interested in Spin chemical physics. His early interests were nuclear spin dynamics and thermodynamics in the solid state with emphasis to spin diffusion and cross polarization. The development of new methods based on scalar J couplings in order to provide assignment in the solid state was part of his PhD studies. Another aspect that he has been interested in is numerical optimization methods. His post-doctoral research interests were centered around the detection of high-resolution NMR in the presence of inhomogeneous and rotating magnetic fields. The goals of this work are to develop portable one-sided NMR and MRI systems. His current interests have to do with novel methods of detection using magnetic resonance.
