Optical/NMR Dual-Modality Probe

ABSTRACT

I have designed and implemented the optical/MR probe composed of: (1) a 1.25mm OD 7-fiber optical sensor and (II) an RF coil (OD 2.3mm, length 2.2mm, five turns 26 AWG). Six fibers were connected to an LED (filtered at 450nm) for high power light emission and one fiber was used for reception of light connected to an optical spectrometer.
