Optimisation and realisation of a portable NMR apparatus and Micro Antenna for NMR

Abstract : This paper is focused on two designs and realizations. The first one concerns a prototype of a portable NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) apparatus. The second one concerns NMR micro antenna realization. For the first part, our goal is the NMR magnetic field homogeneity and the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) improvement. Since de the volume of the sample to analyse is around 1 cm 3 , the design is optimized to obtain a good SNR. Particularly, the magnet is chosen to obtain a high magnetic field with limited inhomogeneities. The receiver antenna is designed and optimized to have high feeling factor and then more sensitivity. A mixer and a low-pass filter are used in order to limit the bandwidth and reduce the thermal noise. The FID is digitized and addressed to a FPGA which averages successive acquisitions in order to increase the SNR. The final acquisition is processed for determining the FID spectrum. In the second part, a new concept of micro coil is presented in order to measure the small volumes and small concentrations samples by NMR spectroscopy at 4.7 T (200 MHz proton frequency resonance). This micro sensor would offer the possibility of new investigation techniques based on micro coils' implantation used for in vivo study of local cerebral metabolites of animals models.
