facilities consist of two laboratories.
The research facility
is housed at the old TI plant, now known as the University Services
Building. The lab houses a 4.7 Tesla, 33 cm horizontal bore superconducting magnet and
a 4.7 Tesla, 40 cm horizontal bore magnet. Both
systems are driven by Varian Unity/Inova spectrometers.
Unique instrumentation in the lab include a 64 channel MRI receiver and a
64 channel MRI transmitter built by grad students with funding from the
National Medical Technology Test Bed (receiver) and the NIH
Animal anesthesia system is available for small animal imaging.
The lab also houses two
permanent magnets donated by IGC. This donation was made possible by Dr. Tim
Skloss, a former Aggie, and Dr. Greg Hurst, who ought to be. A
prototype desktop MRI, developed in the lab, is also available in the lab.
The lab also houses two LPKF printed circuit milling machines,
REMCOM XFDTD electromagnetic analysis softare in addition to custom EM
modeling tools developed in-house.
Additional facilities include three network analyzers, one interfaced to
a computer automated RF measurement system contained in a shielded chamber.
