Minimum energy pulse synthesis via the inverse scattering transform.

Abstract

This paper considers a variety of problems in the design of selective RF-pulses. We apply a formula of Zakharov and Manakov to directly relate the energy of an RF-envelope to the magnetization profile and certain auxiliary parameters used in the inverse scattering transform (IST) approach to RF-pulse synthesis. This allows a determination of the minimum… (More)
