The test concept as well as the design of a simple resistor phantom suitable for the evaluation of the properties of electrical impedance tomographic (EIT) systems is presented. Input and transfer impedance of the phantom are matched with those of the human thorax. Amplitude of the local impedance variations similar to in vivo conditions (ventilation) can… (More)
The effect of electromagnetically coupling a microstrip feedline to a radiating planar element is investigated. The effect of electromagnetically coupling a microstrip feedline to a radiating planar element is investigated.
An ab initio method for the direct calculation of NMR shieldings for selected nuclei at the Hartree-Fock and density-functional theory level is presented. Our method shows a computational effort scaling only sublinearly with molecular size, as it is motivated by the physical consideration that the chemical shielding is dominated by its local environment.… (More)
