Research Projects: 

Unanticipated B1 field patterns may be encountered during simulation and experiments, particularly at high operating frequencies. While a distinctive curling of the B1 field is observed at high field strengths, elaborate checkerboard-like patterns may be obtained for certain dielectric samples. We use full-wave electrodynamic simulations based on dyadic Green's functions to study the effect of the electrical properties of the sample and main magnetic field strength on the B1 field pattern inside a uniform cylindrical object. We show examples of the curling of the field and interference patterns near resonance, providing a conceptual explanation for each case.
