Resource Description

MATCOIL is a program written in Matlab with GUI interfaces that enables both single surface coils and surface coil configurations to be designed, and the resulting B1 fields and sensitivity fields to be calculated and displayed. Additional parameters, such as tip angle, and vector field plots of the B1 field, are also available. The coil shapes may be varied from circular, to elliptical, to rectangular, and may be planar or wrapped about a circular cylinder.  In addition, the program also enables a pair of circular coils to be designed and driven in quadrature, and the resulting B1 fields to be displayed.
