Abstract

Transmission line resonators are often used as coils in high field MRI. Due to distributed nature of such resonators, coils based on them produce inhomogeneous field. This work investigates application of series capacitors to improve field homogeneity along the resonator. The equations for optimal values of evenly distributed capacitors are presented. The performances of the segmented resonator and a regular transmission line resonator are compared.
