  title={Modeling the Magnetization Dynamics for Large Ensembles of Immobilized Magnetic Nanoparticles in Multi-dimensional Magnetic Particle Imaging},
  author={H. Albers and Tobias Knopp and Martin Moddel and M. Boberg and Tobias Kluth},
Magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) play an important role in biomedical applications including imaging modalities such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic particle imaging (MPI). The latter one exploits the non-linear magnetization response of a large ensemble of magnetic nanoparticles to magnetic fields which allows determining the spatial distribution of the MNP concentration from measured voltage signals. The image-to-voltage mapping is linear and described by a system matrix… Expand

First experimental evidence of the feasibility of multi-color magnetic particle imaging.
Experimental evidence of the separability of signals from different particle types and aggregation states using a 'multi-color' reconstruction approach is presented and several mechanisms are discussed that may form the basis for successful signal separation. Expand
