Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Magnetic Resonance finds applications, from spectroscopy to imaging, on a routine basis in the majority of research and medical institutions. It is also becoming more frequently used for specific applications in which the whole instrument and system is designed for optimum operation. Magnetic Resonance sensors have been applied to fields as varied as petro-chemistry - with borehole logging, food engineering - with online process monitoring, emergency medicine - with point of care diagnostics and civil engineering - with sensors for monitoring cement drying. This great diversity is seeing exciting developments in magnetic resonance sensing technology published in application specific journals where they are often not seen by the wider sensor community.

It is clear that there is enormous interest in magnetic resonance sensors and this special edition of Sensors aims to address the wide distribution of relevant articles by providing a forum to disseminate cutting edge research in this field in a single open source publication.

We welcome submissions related to application-specific magnetic resonance sensor technologies, novel applications of sensors to magnetic resonance, new designs for magnetic resonance sensors or their components, new methods for acquiring or processing data collected from magnetic resonance sensors, and other topics within this field. Regular research articles and review articles are equally welcome.

Title:
A Magnetic Resonance Sensor for Physical Evaluation the Level of Ionizing Radiation Absorbed in Humans
Authors: Helen Woflson, Ygal Twig, and Aharon Blank
Affiliation: Schulich Faculty of Chemistry, Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa 32000, Israel; E-Mail: ab359@tx.technion.ac.il
Abstract:
An electron spin resonance (ESR) probe that includes a static field source and a microwave resonator for the measurement of paramagnetic defects in tooth enamel is presented. Such defects are known to be a good marker for quantifying the amount of ionizing radiation dose absorbed in the tooth. The probe is an improved version of our previous design, with typical dimension of just 30 mm. The patient “bites” into the probe while the measurement procedure is being carried out. It is operated in pulsed mode at a frequency of ~11.2 GHz that corresponds to the magnitude of the static magnetic field of its permanent magnet. A detailed design of the probe is provided together with its specifications in terms of measurement volume and signal-to-noise-ratio for a typical sample. Following that we present results with irradiated incisor teeth and provide information about its radiation dose sensitivity.
