Wide-Bore 100-150 kHz Resonator for Non-Contact E-Field Generation via Faraday's Law of Induction

Wide-bore high-Q (about 300) resonator in the form of a low-pass birdcage-coil with inductively-coupled quadrature feed. Driven by a 3 kW custom amplifier. The rotating magnetic field is perpendicular to the coil axis. User-controlled carrier field modulation of 0-1000 Hz is foreseen.  The resulting electric field magnitude within a tissue is about 1 V/cm. Potential applications include Tumor Treating Fields (TTFields, high intensity) and chronic pain treatment  (peripheral nervous system, lower intensity).

Average electric field strength in selected tissues computed for the full-body human model at the abdominal/neck landmark. Coil power is fixed at 2.4 kW. Over 95% of this power is dissipated in the coil itself

Purpose
To create alternating  (modulated) electric field/electric current in a biological tissue via Faraday's law of induction. 

Device Availability

Available for biomedical experimentation including custom modifications. We are looking for medical collaborators/sponsors.
