In this work, a fully optical Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) based catheter tracking system designed for 3 T Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) environment is presented. The system aims to solve the Radio Frequency (RF) induced heating problem present in conventional wired catheter tracking systems used in MRI. It is based on an integrated(More)
We describe a new method for frequency down-conversion of MR signals acquired with the radio-frequency projections method for device localization. A low-amplitude, off-center RF pulse applied simultaneously with the echo signal is utilized as the reference for frequency down-conversion. Because of the low-amplitude and large offset from the Larmor(More)
We present a micro electromechanical tunable capacitor with a low control voltage, a wide tuning range and adequate electrical quality factor. The device is fabricated in a single-crystalline silicon layer using deep reactive ion etching (DRIE) for obtaining high-aspect ratio (> 20) parallel combdrive structures with vertical sidewalls. The process sequence(More)
