Abstract

Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) offers several methods for encoding magnetic materials in three-dimensions. The complexity of the imaging device in MPI using a field free line (FFL) is the biggest challenge in realizing such devices. This is especially the case for systems featuring large bores, high gradients or high temporal resolution. In this work, we suggest a novel Halbach cylinder based field generator that is able to generate an FFL with a gradient of 5 T/m. By rotating the Halbach array, FFL projections can be acquired. Furthermore, just one static drive field coil is needed for two-dimensional imaging. The presented concept could combine high gradient strength and high temporal resolution with minimum space requirements for FFL-MPI imaging in the future.Int. J. Mag. Part.
